IMP Meerschaum: Smooth Acorn (with Case)
Product Number: 002-316-3393
I find the Acorn to be a shape that feels incredibly natural in hand, though when it's crafted from smooth, porous meerschaum it becomes even softer when gripped — providing for quite the comfortable smoke. This IMP rendition is a wonderful example, reminiscent of the Horn shape with its sweeping line work and curling transition. The plump bowl wears its waistline high along the rim, working in tandem with the well-defined transition to promote a comfortable in hand feel. However, my favorite aspect about this piece is how the shank is subtly paneled, its lines merging with the bowl seamlessly, barely noticeable until the light meets the stummel in just the right way. The semi-translucent acrylic stem is gently downturned for easy clenching, while its light sky blue tones stand out just enough against the meerschaum's pale white color.- Jeffery Sitts
