Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Vintage Natural (1931) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1054
The "1931" design from 4th Generation is a subtly bent and forward-inclined bent Apple that corresponds to Erik Stokkebye's 1931 blend, a Virginia and Burley flake. The pipe tobacco honors the birthdate of Erik's father, Erik Peter, the third generation of the Stokkebye family's long standing tobacco tradition, and as a pipe shape, it's a dynamic rendition designed by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup pipes. As such, it beautifully reflects Peder's signature interpretation of classic Danish pipe design, the lines of this piece soft and supple as the transition gently eases into the bowl's curvature. In line with Neerup's typical aesthetic, the bowl is more muscular compared to the slender shank and stem, and it's founded on a firm heel, making for a hearty, natural presence in hand while the profile prioritizes elegant fluidity and poise.
One of the most vivid finishes across Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's lineup, the Vintage Natural features pipes dressed in a smooth texture and vibrant contrast stain that combines rich gold and auburn hues. Such a presentation exemplifies Peder Jeppesen's renowned aesthetic — the Danish carver behind Neerup pipes who also crafts a number of 4th Generation's lines — and his work often presents bold color palettes, as indicated by this piece's combination of finish, multi-hued acrylic stem, and flashy metal accent.-Truett Smith
