Eltang Basic: Dark Rusticated Poker Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-837-0566
Tom Eltang is a legendary Danish artisan whose work has inspired that of many others and whose portfolio includes a number of signature shapes. Among these is a sleek, utilitarian Poker which he calls the "smoking machine," which he used as the basis for the design that comprises the sole shape in his Basic line. It provides a low-cost entry point into his body of work and offers a practical and well-engineered workhorse smoking experience. As part of his Basic series, this Poker comes fitted with a nearly unbreakable carbon fiber shank and a black acrylic saddle stem, keeping the weight extremely light and allowing for easy clenching. The briar bowl is a forward-canting cylinder that sits sturdily on its heel and rises fairly high to afford a bit of extra chamber, its shape easy in the hand and iconic in style. This particular piece comes dressed in one of Eltang's signature rustications, with stacked rings carved across its surfaces for plenty of textural appeal, and a dark stain that keeps things looking pastoral.-John McElheny
