Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Brown Ale (1966) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-0777
The "1966" pipe design corresponds to Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's 1966 tobacco blend. While most of 4th Generation's mixtures and related pipe shapes are named to honor the birthdates of the family brand's patriarchs — Erik, his father, his grandfather, and his great-grandfather — 1966 commemorates Erik's younger brother and celebrates the Stokkebye family's long standing tobacco tradition. Like many of the pipe shapes made for Erik Stokkebye, the "1966" was designed and fashioned by Danish carver Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, and while the general gesture of the profile resembles 4th Generation's "1957" Acorn, the "1966" is a more soft-lined rendition: The bowl is more squat and bears a rounded rim, with the lithe curves of the shank and stem flowing seamlessly through the bowl's heel and fore side.
Appropriately named, the Brown Ale finish dresses Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation pipes in a low-depth sandblast and a stain of smoldering reddish-brown hues not unlike the deep, amber color of that traditional style of beer. Similar to the pipe's shaping, this finishing style reflects the signature aesthetic of Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, known for his contrasting stains and use of vibrant color palettes. This pipe is commended further by an ornate, bronze accent band, while the acrylic stem tastefully complements the stummel.-Truett Smith
