Becker: Sandblasted Tomato (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0782
In this Tomato rendition, Federico Becker opts for a more rounded, curvaceous design, compared to the Italian artisan's typically more angular, sharply lined Dublin and Billiard forms. The third generation of Becker artisan pipe makers, Federico has here fashioned a compact, lightweight piece that prioritizes convenient size and stunning finishing. Even with the bowl being squat and plump, the profile still maintains Becker's characteristic sleekness thanks to the gradual taper through the slender shank and stem. Neatly sandblasted for just the right amount of texture, this pipe wears a virgin finish, showcasing the briar's natural hue and allowing it to darken with a patina as it's smoked. Such darkening will visually represent the time enjoyed with this piece, as well as cause the stummel to complement more and more the darker hues of the cumberland stem.-Truett Smith
