Jess Chonowitsch: Smooth Lovat
Product Number: 002-367-0133
A rather diminutive pipe from the venerable Danish artisan Jess Chonowitsch, this Lovat rendition measures less than five inches in length. Despite the more compact profile, though, the proportions of this piece almost exaggerate the characteristic shaping cues of the archetypal Lovat: The shank is obviously elongated, accentuated by the bowl's more squat disposition, and the saddle stem is considerably abbreviated — such a combination belying this piece's petite size. Like all Chonowitsch pipes, this piece excels in every area, from shaping and finishing, to stem work, internal engineering, and the more tedious aspects of pipemaking. Considered one of the best pipemakers ever, Jess is an expert of visual balance and perfect line work. Nothing is out of place on this piece, ensuring complete consistency, and the finish wraps it all in a gorgeous presentation — the mahogany stain revealing a stunning combination of straight and flame grain patterns.-Truett Smith
