Becker: Sandblasted Acorn (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0789
Combining elements of the Poker and Acorn with Federico Becker's sleek and streamlined personal style, this hybrid pipe design features a long, poised profile. The bowl exhibits an Acorn's typical, high-set roundness, but bears a flattened heel as opposed to the normal, tapered spur. The transition is raised to accentuated that paneled underside, and it also lends the bowl a perched nature, as if propped on the end of a slender branch. Arrow-straight, the shank-and-stem combination promotes an aerodynamic stance that's recognizable as Becker's work, as is the use of a cumberland stem. As for the stummel, it's been sandblasted but left unstained to encourage natural patination as it's smoked — the briar gradually darkening to visually represent years of enjoyment. The choice of a virgin finish also testifies to this briar block's quality, supported further by the stunning growth rings Becker has highlighted.-Truett Smith
