Becker: Smooth Dublin (Three Hearts)
Product Number: 002-007-0777
For an artisan whose portfolio is dominated by sandblasted pipes, this smooth Dublin from Federico Becker makes a statement and stands out like a beacon to fans of the Italian carver's esteemed work. The finish highlights symmetrical, windswept grain across the bowl in an auburn stain, and while the smooth finish is rare from Becker, the shape is readily recognizable as his work — the perfect shape and finish combination. A straight Dublin, it bears Zulu inclinations in its bowl's forward cant, but the stem remains arrow straight and sleek. Most indicative of Federico's signature style, is the pointed nature of the heel, adding sharpness to his fare and an angular crispness that here translates to an almost aerodynamic disposition. It's a beautiful blend of traditional Dublin shaping cues, tastefully accented by the aspects that make it quintessentially and individually Becker.-Truett Smith
