Ryan Alden: Sandblasted Apple with Silver (King of Clubs)
Product Number: 002-777-0047
Ryan Alden offers quite the range when it comes to pipe sizes, presenting bold pieces on par with a Dunhill Group 6 or ODA as well as those of incredibly compact, pocket-friendly proportions. This particular Apple fits well into the latter category, perfectly balancing nosewarmer length with a plump bowl that offers comfortable substance in hand. Shape-wise, it fits into the American carver's traditional aesthetic — though abbreviated of length, it features a classic Apple bowl, marked by a plump base and slight taper toward the rim, hinting at the soft-lined cues of many a Danish design. Ryan has furthered this motif in the finish, accenting with dark-stained, ring-grain adorned sandblast with an inflated, smooth polished, and ruby-tinged rim and a striking band of silver at the shank end. Topping it all off, it sits sturdily upright, adding to its versatility. Whether sitting on a desk or stowed in a jacket pocket, it's ready to accompany you anywhere.-Truett Smith
