Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Brown Ale (2012) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1275
Named after Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's 2012 Anniversary Blend, this bent Dublin fits in well to the Danish marque's other designs which are likewise named after the brand's celebrated tobacco blends. Those mixtures draw their names from significant dates within the family company's generational history, and 2012 is the year Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation was founded. Shape-wise, this piece features a bold, subtly flaring bowl contrasted against the comparatively more slender and gestural shank-and-stem combination, exhibiting a tasteful combination of muscularity and fluid elegance.
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
