Bruce Weaver: Sandblasted Bent Apple with Boxwood

Product Number: 002-531-0059

The long, slow arc of this bent Apple's shank makes for a smooth, easy profile. In addition to displaying a deft eye and steady hand for shaping in and of itself, it also happens to be an aspect that shows off a good "reading" of the briar: Weaver coaxed it to neatly follow the curve of the ring-grain, from the transition right through to the end. From the short, slender, just-so bend of the stem, to the shank design, to the form of the bowl, this is simply one finely composed pipe. Of course, those who swear by the drier smoking qualities of a lengthy shank will certainly appreciate the practicality as well as the aesthetics of how Bruce incorporated one here.
