Geiger: Smooth Bodog with Horn
Product Number: 002-564-0021
Sara Mossberg and Love Geiger have been honing their rendition of Bo Nordh's elusive, yet iconic Bulldog/Rhodesian shape for some time now. The first iteration was born from a collector's request to create their own take on Bo Nordh's orphaned, one-off concept, and, armed only with pipemaker Bengt Carlsson's sketch of the shape and knowledge of the one extant original's fatal flaw, they did just that: brought the form back to life.
Lighter and sleeker in form and line, with a slight taper to the canted chamber to avoid the original design's flaw, the result was what they called the "Bo Dog" — a form that's already been well-received by artisans and pipe smokers the world round. But Sara and Love weren't done yet. Recently, they decided to infuse the form with reverse-Calabash engineering, placing a cooling chamber in the wide, flaring shank. This piece features that latest augmentation, along with a more domed-style rim and a stronger forward posture in profile. All that said, it's my favorite rendition of the design to date.
