Butz-Choquin: Gentleman Black (5)
Product Number: 002-010-0639
The first thing that strikes you about the very handsome Gentleman Black is its very diminutive size, which one can conclude takes a step beyond the "nosewarmer" classification by way of a firm compactness that's almost, dare I say, teapot-like. The shape lends well to the grip it allows, quite comfortable and reassuring, which is strange because given these proportions one would expect some fidgeting. The next thing that you'll realize is the thorough black, matte stain covering the surface, resembling the "Panthere" finish of similar French maker Chacom, minus the rubber. The result is a pipe that will fit almost any style of dress, and accompany you most anywhere, a piece that truly lives ups to its name.
