Geiger: Smooth Euclid Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-564-0018

Euclid of Alexandria, the Father of Geometry — the fellow whose Elements served as a standard textbook for more than two-thousand years (the "holy little geometry book" as Einstein called it). Not a small accomplishment, especially considering he produced it without the benefit of Hindu numerals (if you think the mathematics courses you had to take in school were hard, you should see the hoops that had to be jumped through to solve problems using Greek, or later Roman number systems — engineers and scholars must have been made of stern stuff in those days).

Evidently Sara and Love have no small appreciation for Euclid's legacy, since they've gone and named a pipe after him — and a drop-dead beautiful one at that. I'm going to hazard a guess and say they went about this design inspired by Euclid's work involving circles and "lines" (in which Euclid included curves), and their relations and interactions, as aside from the face of the bit and (canted) plane of the rim, you aren't going to find anything on this pipe that doesn't follow some graceful curve or another, in some cases subtle (the base of the saddle stem), in others dramatic (the matched curves of shank and bowl).

The only thing this briar has more of than curves, I would say, is grain.
