Former: Smooth Apple Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-017-0395
To say Hans "Former" Nielsen has mastered this straight Apple design would be an understatement, as it is a regular and much-loved staple of the Danish artisan's impressive portfolio, a workhorse design that has proven itself countless times. While he often sends us rusticated or sandblasted renditions, this sleek iteration boasts a smooth finish and a rich auburn stain, displaying brilliant flame grain on the sides and a wealth of dense birdseye on the rim, top of the shank, and underside.
Immediately recognizable as a Former from across the room, it displays a plumpness that runs low, providing enough cheeking at the base to allow it to sit reliably at a jaunty angle on its rounded heel. The bowl is canted slightly forward, allowing the shank to exit low and stretch arrow-straight toward a lithe acrylic saddle stem. Only 28 grams in weight and with a compact length in Nosewarmer territory, this is pipe ready to go anywhere and will look and smoke amazing when you get there.- Joel Balyeat
