Sam Adebayo: Sandblasted Long Shank Pear with Bakelite
Product Number: 002-750-0020
At nearly 7.5 inches in length, this piece makes an impression. Both bowl and shank taper to the transition. Craggy circles of grain surround the bowl, and the rim, also sandblasted, is chamfered toward the tobacco chamber very slightly. The monochromatic color palette, punctuated only by streaks of moderately darker grain, is attractive and compelling. A Bakelite stem finishes off the piece, matching the stain of the stummel, rounded before stepping down to the saddle configuration of the mouthpiece. There's a certain minimalism to this shape, with it's single-color hue and organic bend. If you've been looking for a larger pipe with subtlty, this piece is waiting for you.- Chuck Stanion
