Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Brown Ale (1931) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1273
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.
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
