Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Brown Ale (1957) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1274
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.
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
