Brad Pohlmann: Sandblasted Contrast Lovat with Spalted Tamarind
Product Number: 002-381-0062
So just imagine how much this thing has me turned on. The two-tone, high-contrast stain of muted orange-red under deep maroon highlights paints a fiery landscape across a mix of flame and straight grain. And the stem, perhaps the most critical component of a Lovat (it's here accented handsomely with tamarind) was flawlessly executed from the overall shape and width to the button and the slot. In terms of composition the whole pipe is really well balanced despite a shank that some may consider just a hair longer than your average Lovat. Though, with grain as interesting as this, the lengthier shank is a total bonus.
Now I will go weep, for you will have this pipe while I cannot.
