Becker: Sandblasted Apple (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0770
Federico Becker's shaping style is easily recognized by the pointed heel many of his pipes feature, not to mention the often slender shaping. This Apple is one such piece — perfect for those interested in a signature Becker design, and certainly appropriate as someone's introduction into the Italian carver's work. The elongation of the shank-and-stem combination adds sleekness to the profile and lends the bowl a perched-like posture. Though rounded through the flanks, this Apple rendition isn't particularly bulbous or robust, instead matching the shank and stem's streamlined nature. The underside of the shank, then, continues into the bowl's heel, reaching a point at the lower fore for Becker's signature aesthetic. Dressed in a natural tanblast, this piece will darken handsomely over time, adding further character to the ring grain adorning the bowl.-Truett Smith
