PS Studio: Sandblasted Poker with Zebrawood
Product Number: 002-458-0382
Led by Vladimir Grechukhin, the PS Studio workshop produces high-quality pipes at an attractive price point, featuring shapes designed by Grechukhin that are then carved and finished by fellow Russian artisans Alexander Tupitsyn and Sergey Dyomin. The Poker is a shape we've rarely seen from PS Studio, but this rendition is an impressive take on the classic, beloved form. The tall, cylindrical bowl displays a subtle degree of forward cant but is nicely balanced by the straight shank-and-stem combination. Despite the bowl's size, this piece is quite compact and pocket-friendly, measuring less than five inches in total length. The chestnut-hued sandblast offers a wealth of textural intrigue and is handsomely complemented by the zebrawood accent that adorns the shank end. With artisanal details, such as the chamfered tenon and fanned out smoke channel at the lip button, PS Studio provides remarkable value, and attention to detail generally found only in pipes costing considerably more.- Jeffery Sitts
