Eltang Basic: Dark Rusticated Poker
Product Number: 002-837-0443
There simply isn't a more iconic Poker design than Tom Eltang's utilitarian smoking machine, particularly when finished in his signature rustication. Naturally, Tom has chosen the Poker as the first model in his Eltang Basic line. However, he's made a few tweaks to the popular design; the shank (typically fashioned from either briar or bamboo) has been replaced with ultra-light and ultra-durable carbon fiber, while the proprietary mouthpieces are machined to be fitted with a reverses tenon. Aside from being nearly indestructible, the carbon fiber shank was also selected for its heat-resistant properties, making it the ideal shank material for a pipe that is designed to be a workhorse.
As far as function is concerned, these Eltang Basic Pokers are downright amazing. They're destined to earn a permanent spot in your rotation, I have no doubt. If you're anything like me, then just one of these workhorse Pokers might not be enough. In that case, I'd definitely suggesting starting with this dark rusticated example. It's a sleek, and modern composition, brimming with Eltang style.- Shane Ireland
