Former: Smooth Bent Egg
Product Number: 002-017-0363
Hans "Former" Nielsen's 60 years of pipe making experience is evident in the deft execution and phenomenal design attributes of this bent Egg. In profile, the undercurve dominates the piece's flow from shank end to rim, an arc that is echoed by upper shank and inversely matched by the bowl's aft line. The end of the shank contributes to that character with a gentle dome of briar before introducing the minimalist, saddle mouthpiece.
Proportion is everything in this rendition, the shank offering the perfect length and flaring diameter to balance the organically inclined shaping of the bowl. Contrast stain highlights the grain that angles across the bowl, deftly contributing its own curvature in support of the elegant shaping. The rim is beautifully beveled around the tobacco chamber, terminating the vertical reach of the bowl with precision. This is a soundly Danish shape executed by one of the most experienced and respected Danish carvers in history.- Chuck Stanion
