Jess Chonowitsch: Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-367-0147
A plump, affable Nosewarmer bent Brandy from the inimitable Jess Chonowitsch, this rendition is a flag-bearer for Danish pipe design and a signature Jess shape. Every line of this creation is intentional and precise; from the gently inflated rim, to the subtly lifted heel, to the abbreviated S-curve of shank and stem, perfection quietly whispers, unspoiled by the medium-depth sandblast. Whether nestling snugly in hand or hanging lightly from your jaw, this pipe is the result of decades of design perfection and is sure to delight.
The briar's beauty springs forth in rippling ring grain patterns, with growth rings climbing up and around the bowl's swell to reach the smooth rim. The dark, mysterious stain of the briar is contrasted by a pale accent of boxwood at the shank end, a termination that is rounded to mirror the rim's curvature. The stem is precisely hand-cut vulcanite, expanding to a trim expansion ring before reducing to a sleek saddle configuration and bending gracefully down on a short run to the lip button. The negative space above the transition whispers an invitation for thumb draping, beckoning for the pipe to be held, and Jess' legendary engineering inside and out promises an unmatched smoking experience. For anyone looking for a truly exemplary piece for their collection, this pipe deserves close attention.- Joel Balyeat
