Scottie Piersel: Sandblasted Magnum Pencil Shank Rhodesian Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-786-0097
Scottie Piersel's work is just as impressive as it is recognizable with her pencil-shanked designs being some of the most distinctive in modern pipe making. Crafting pencil-shanked pipes is a demanding, arduous process since even the slightest mistake can throw off an entire design. Though many pencil-shanked pipes may appear fragile or delicate, this piece is anything but feeble. Scottie has reinforced the slender shank with a stainless steel tube which attaches to the stem in a reverse tenon arrangement. It's a testament to her philosophy that an excellent pipe should not only function well, but cultivate a desire to smoke it, fashioning pipes that are aesthetically pleasing and durable to withstand life's daily rigors.
The American artisan here presents a Magnum Rhodesian, with the muscular bowl being the most visually prominent feature in relation to the thin, consistently tapering shank-and-stem that continues arrow straight behind it. Said bowl maintains the form's signature beadlines, placing them around its midsection while remaining defined underneath the stummel's crisp sandblast. The sandblast has coaxed out a remarkable array of wavy ring grain and is finished is a deep, crimson-tinged stain. The rim has been left smooth and is strongly beveled, allowing for a bowl to be packed easily and offers some subtle contrast. The shank wears a pale white accent ring before leading to the wide, fishtail mouthpiece with its olive green hue complementing the stummel's rustic color.- Jeffery Sitts
