Geiger: Sandblasted Jalapeño Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-564-0062

To understand this Jalapeño shape from Sara Mossberg and Love Geiger of Geiger pipes, one must first discuss Sixten Ivarsson. Of course, Sixten's drill-second approach catalyzed the artisan pipe-making movement, but his shaping style and design aesthetic have also greatly influenced Danish pipe making, with Stanwell having commissioned Ivarsson to design pipe shapes and a number of other makers emulating and expanding upon Sixten's signature forms. One such signature Ivarsson shape is the Nefertiti. It's something of a hybrid of Dublin and Acorn informed by the sleek, slender proportions common from the Danish functionalist aesthetic. Traditionally, Sixten rendered the shape with a long shank-and-stem combination, the saddle stem about as long as the shank for added sleekness.

In 2020, the Swedish duo of Geiger pipes began experimenting with their own version of the Nefertiti, eventually landing on this slightly bent rendition, which they affectionately dubbed the "Jalapeño" for its obviously, pepper-like silhouette. Echoing Sixten's original design, this pipe exudes slender, streamlined proportions, but incorporates a lithe, fluid S-curve through the shank and tapered stem for a more gestural style. Extremely lightweight and wonderfully creative yet still tastefully traditional, this pipe is a wonderful homage to the grandfather of artisan pipe making from one of the most esteemed pipe-making duos today. It's completed by a typical, Danish-style finish, accenting a dark-stained, low-profile sandblast with a lighter, smooth-polished rim.
