Mark Tinsky: Morta Calabash with Bocote and Morta Cap (5)
Product Number: 002-035-0797
When Mark Tinsky opened a pipe-making company in an old farmhouse in 1978, he likely never suspected he would one day be carving handmade signature pipes in Montana. Even less likely that he could have foreseen creating striking pieces out of a petrified bog oak called morta. Yet here we have a beautiful, highly interpretive Calabash made from that very material, accented handsomely with bocote around the rim, waist, and shank end. The American carver makes excellent use of the heat-resistant material, with a generous bowl and a very slightly downturned stem, promising a leisurely, comfortable smoke. For lovers of the smoking properties of a Calabash who also are on the lookout for a fine morta piece from a talented craftsman, you can't go wrong with this Tinsky pipe.-Joel Balyeat
