Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Dark Porter (1957)
Product Number: 002-787-0483
This Acorn design corresponds to Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's 1957 pipe tobacco blend, named in honor of Erik Stokkebye's birthdate. The current patriarch of the Stokkebye family's long standing tobacco tradition, Erik continues the work of his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, providing quality tobacco blends as well as handsomely Danish-style pipes. The "1957" pipe shape is a lithe and poised Acorn, designed and fashioned for Stokkebye by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup. The bowl dominates the profile, perched on the end of a subtly serpentine shank-and-stem combination, with the transition noticeably more raised than Stokkebye's "1966" Acorn shape. With the rim slightly domed and delineated by a striking ridgeline, the "1957" is a shape that beautifully combines traditional Danish pipe design with Peder's signature aesthetic.
The low-profile sandblast of the Dark Porter series offers just the right hint of texture in hand while still maintaining the lines of this pipe's silhouette. Such a combination is typical among Danish pipes and is reflected in Peder Jeppesen's handling of this finish. The maker behind Neerup pipes, Peder also fashions a number of Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's pieces, merging his own artistic style with the tobacco brand's rich, familial tradition. That aesthetic is evident in the Dark Porter's subtly contrasting stain, the prominent, porter hue darker than 4th Generation's similarly inspired Brown Ale series but interspersed with lighter sections for added depth and a rich, black-and-tan motif.-Truett Smith
