Becker: Sandblasted Acorn (Three Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0834
Sleek and compact, this charming Acorn from Federico Becker presents a bowl that's more squat and rounded than in his taller versions. Classically inclined, with its high-set, inflated waistline at the rim and subtle taper downward, the heel is marked by a jutting, pointed spur beneath the fore, a signature shaping cue favored by the Italian artisan. The lithe shank and stem are streamlined and taper gradually and elegantly toward the bit, a design cue often seen in Italian pipes. The stummel is dressed in a dark sandblast that highlights handsome growth rings, especially along the left flank, with the inner rim and trim ring of briar at the shank end smoothly polished for contrast. The aforementioned cumberland mouthpiece further accentuates the pipe's color palette.-Angela Robertson
