Caminetto: Smooth Bent Egg (02) (AT) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0736
Measuring in at less than five inches long, this bent Egg from Caminetto displays a thoroughly neoclassical shaping style in a compact package. The stem here is a smartly curved taper of jet-black acrylic which meets a softly domed shank face that the stem base nestles into slightly, the shank itself possessed of far more breadth than the stem, affording some striking separation between stem and stummel. The transition is sharp and tightly-knit, though still wide enough to drape a thumb, leading the eye to a plump and welcoming bowl that's full of supple curves. The waistline here is a bit lower-set than we'd usually see in an Egg bowl, though it's still certainly an Egg, taking on a gentle taper from there to the rim and offering a pleasing feel in hand. Dressing the briar here is a smooth, natural finish that unveils dense flickers of flame grain surrounding the bowl, with the unstained briar to take on patina as it is smoked.-John McElheny
