Gabriele: Smooth Long Shank Tomato with Masur Birch (Nautilus)
Product Number: 002-533-0085
A smooth natural pipe is a rarity, and while this one may have just the slightest of stains, it presents as natural and flawless, with grain everywhere. The saddle stem, in jet black, is a stark contrast to the stummel, almost as if it was somewhere in the background rather than an integral part of the pipe. The creamy Masur Birch ring at the end of the shank is even lighter than the briar, and provides a neat demarcation between briar and vulcanite. Organically rounded in the Tomato shape, it fills the palm, with the vertical width greater than the horizontal for additional ease of holding. That teardrop shape at the transition graduates to roundness at the end of the shank in an imperceptible evolution. It's a stunning piece of briar carved to perfection.- Chuck Stanion
