Jess Chonowitsch: Smooth Billiard with Horn
Product Number: 002-367-0014
A Pot with horn. Nothing unusual, right? Look again. Closer. Now the bad news: there's only one, and only one pipe enthusiast can own it. Let the lamentations commence, mine included. This is the kind of pipe that makes you wish you'd never seen it, because it will haunt you for life. The birdseye at heel and rim alone is enough to make a longshoreman weep like a toy-deprived toddler, and the consistent, fine grain surrounding the bowl could cause whole species migrations to stop and rethink travel plans. Jess Chonowitsch is a freak of nature; no one should be able to do what he does, not even him, and the fact that he does it so often and so consistently is infuriating and impossible. But he does it anyway. Perfect stemwork, perfect shaping, mind-blowing attention to detail, all are evident in this pipe. If you want a pipe that inspires awe, look no further.
