Scott Klein: Sandblasted Egg on a Leaf Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-517-0117

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Scott Klein developed an affinity for woodworking in his youth. After working a variety of trade jobs, Scott Klein eventually met Alex Florov, who introduced Klein to pipe making. Klein quickly became enamored with the process, and, under Florov's tutelage, learned the nuances of engineering, shaping, finishing, and accenting. Over the years, Klein has honed his craft and developed a style completely his own, though influences from the Danish, Japanese, and America schools of design are evident in his work.

A striking design rife with organic beauty, this "Egg on a Leaf" design resembles its namesake and offers a broad, ovoid bowl that's situated atop a curvaceous arc of briar, which comprises both the shank and the body of the stummel. Additionally, the "Leaf" component of this composition comes to a firm point at the pipe's fore, adding a touch of forward-ebbing dynamism to the shape's profile. Firm ridgelines frame either flank of the stummel and lend structural definition to the otherwise supple, curvaceous form. A dark sandblast adds further tactile character to the shape and highlights striking grain across the briar's surface.
