Mark Tinsky: Root Zulu (5) (One Star)
Product Number: 002-035-0839
Only the third Zulu we have ever received from Mark Tinsky, this bold beauty makes me wish he would send us the shape more often. A forward-canted bowl offers a substantial chamber volume for your favorite blend, while a tapering shank and stem combination curl gently downward out back. The arrangement tops six inches of length, quite large for the usually lithe Zulu, making this one of the largest renditions of it I have seen. It's a beautifully executed cross grain iteration, though, with dense fields of birdsye on both flanks illuminated by a honey-blond stain and and smooth finish. Dark hues of swirling acrylic comprise the stem, while a thin white accent provides contrast at the shank end. Tinsky stamps his pipes displaying especially good grain with a star, and this pipe has surely earned its stamp.- Joel Balyeat
