Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Dark Porter (1982) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-0878
Erik Stokkebye's 4th Generation "1982" is a stoutly proportioned straight Dublin and shares a name with Stokkebye's popular 1982 aromatic tobacco blend. Typically, the family brand's mixtures commemorate the birthdates of historic Stokkebye family members, but 1982 is an outlier, instead honoring the company's 100th anniversary. As a pipe, the "1982" is designed and fashioned by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, representing the Danish maker's signature, muscular style. The bowl displays a subtle flare to the rim while keeping the base considerably robust and the walls quite stout for a squat, almost Pot-like 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
