Tom Eltang: Smooth Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-299-0879
Full of simple precision and elegant grace, this bent Apple from Tom Eltang exudes the Danish carver's beautiful aesthetic and functionalist approach to pipemaking. At under five inches in length and weighing under 40 grams, it's a compact piece and one of the most diminutive renditions of the form we've received from Tom. Adding to its charm, is this pipe's simplicity — it's free of adorning accents or ostentatious design cues, instead allowing superb proportions, sublime grain, and supreme engineering to receive all the attention. The bowl is perfectly plump, perched on the end of the lithe, oval shank for an easy posture in hand or clenched, and as any Eltang pipe, this piece boasts some of the best smoking properties and bit work, ready to draw compliments wherever you light it up thanks to one of Tom's iconic contrast stains.-Truett Smith
