Becker: Sandblasted Apple (Two Clubs) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-007-0868

The Becker family has built an impressive reputation among pipe aficionados over the past 50 years, creating high quality smoking implements since the 1970's. Third-generation carver Federico now continues the Becker name, preserving his family's traditions while developing his own personal style.

This Apple is an excellent example of Becker's work, displaying the artisan's signature aesthetic and keen eye for quality briar. The bowl is tall and quite broad, featuring plump, supple walls that sweep up to a round, domed rim. The softness of the bowl is bracingly contrasted by the heel, which extends to a sharp, jutting point in a move characteristic of Becker's style. Out back, a comparatively slim round shank extends from a slightly cheeked transition to join a comfortably tapered vulcanite stem. Dressed in a remarkably crisp, natural sandblast, the stummel boasts excellent ring grain and blasted birdseye earning this piece a prestigious Two Clubs grade designation. Over time, the stummel will darken with use, developing a rich patina that will only enhance the briar's natural beauty.
