IMP Meerschaum: Smooth Bent Apple (with Case)
Product Number: 002-316-3681
This stylized bent Apple design from IMP exemplifies the Turkish workshop's creative approach to traditional shapes and ability to re-imagine them in unique ways. While the plump, affably rounded bowl is classically shaped, the shank is the most distinctive element of this design. Featuring a mix of crisp ridgelines and fluting channels, the shank's execution adds texture to the otherwise smooth stummel in a way I've hardly seen on a meerschaum pipe before. The expansion rings along the stem's base add further whimsy to the profile before the rest of the mouthpiece arcs upward before terminating in a gentle downturn. This piece is also surprisingly compact, measuring just under five inches in total length, making it a solid choice for those who prefer conveniently sized shapes carved from pale, porous meerschaum.- Jeffery Sitts
