Dirk Heinemann: Sandblasted Architect with Ox Bone
Product Number: 002-793-0009
Quite the unusual shape, this Architect from Dirk Heinemann suits its title — strongly paneled, from the flattened rim to the near-horizontal stretch of its shank, as well as a smooth panel along the underside, it would be difficult to describe this pipe without using the word "structural." It's a sturdy sitter, for sure, and what it lacks in length it makes up in breadth, though all of those lines don't stop it from being comfortable in hand. And as for the finish, his crisp, low-profile sandblast has brought out the best of the briar's grain, while a dark stain maintains an understated sense of class about the piece as a whole — with just a trim band of ox bone to accent.- Rachel DuBose
