Scottie Piersel: Relief Contrast Pencil Shank Billiard with Ivorite Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-786-0103
This is an incredibly lightweight pipe from Scottie Piersel, weighing in at only 25 grams yet still presenting a rather standard Group 3, or so, overall size. Such a lightweight profile is due to Scottie's signature pencil-shank aesthetic, having rendered this pipe's shank almost impossibly slender without sacrificing durability thanks to being completely lined with reinforcing stainless steel that fits to the stem in a reverse-tenon configuration. The sleek nature of the shank and stem lend the Billiard bowl a perched posture, as if it's balancing precariously on the end of the transition. This piece also presents Scottie's Relief Contrast finish: The finishing technique involves sanding down a sandblast's peaks, resulting in both a contrast of smooth and blasted textures as well as light and dark stain colors. It's a decidedly unique and striking aesthetic, furthered by the use of pale Ivorite and lime-green acrylic for the accent and stem.-Truett Smith
