Former: Smooth Bent Egg with Silver Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-017-0377
An understated forward cant provides a sporty impression of acceleration in this smooth Egg from the workshop of Hans "Former" Nielsen. Its mahogany stain complements the striated cumberland hues of the stem, while a broad, flush-mounted, sterling silver band offers bright contrast and elegant appeal. The bowl retains its organic curvature even through the transition, which is tightly executed and visually felicitous as it joins the sturdy shank to the curvaceous bowl.
There's a slight upward curve to the shank, echoing the consistent curvature found throughout this design, counterbalanced by the gentle downward curve of the saddle mouthpiece. Supremely natural in hand and exhibiting the fine craftsmanship of Former's 60+ years of experience, this is a smoking instrument that will commend itself in any circumstance.- Chuck Stanion
