Tom Eltang: Sandblasted Gold Pencil Shank Liverpool
Product Number: 002-299-0880
Tom's classic pencil-shanked Liverpool, on its own, makes for a beautiful pipe — charmingly diminutive, all unnecessary excess removed to present only what is essential, and sandblasted to bring out the best of the briar. But that is only the beginning of this piece. Using a technique of hand-layering gold leaf over the sandblasted briar — a method which took months of development to perfect — the pipe has been dressed in a metallic sheen, catching the eye with the shimmering hue of one of the most sought-after materials on the planet. And yet, it remains sleek, only giving as much as is necessary — just as we would expect from Tom.- Rachel DuBose
