Sara Eltang: Sandblasted Billiard with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-332-0668
The Sara Eltang line, named after Tom Eltang's daughter, offers the Danish carver's iconic finishing and shaping style at a price point more readily accessible compared to his artisan pieces. This saddle-stemmed Billiard, like all Sara Eltang pipes, was designed and hand finished by Tom in a small artisan workshop, the Danish artisan keeping a close eye on every step of the shaping process. A simple design, this piece showcases the soft lines and supple curves characteristic of Danish pipe making, with the bowl slightly rounded and forward-canted, with cheeking about the transition. It wears a pleasant, light-depth tanblast and has been rendered in a slightly taller form factor to offer plenty of chamber depth, the bright hues of the stummel offset by a band of dark horn at the shank end.-Truett Smith
