Scottie Piersel: Relief Contrast Pencil Shank Rhodesian with Ivorite
Product Number: 002-786-0111
An elegant, streamlined Rhodesian from Scottie Piersel, this pencil-shanked piece is imbued with stainless steel tubing through the airway for unmitigated reinforcement. Looks are deceiving with the American carver's iconic pencil shanks, because they're thinner than any pencil and look fragile, but the steel lining makes them as sturdy as ever. Certainly, it's a testament to Scottie's talents to craft such a playfully deceptive pipe. The bowl is broad but gently rounded, with a beveled, smooth rim and a more subtle beadline softening what often is a structured, rigid form. This Rhodesian is dressed in the artisan's iconic Relief Contrast finish, rendered by sanding the peaks of the sandblasted surface of the briar, resulting in a rugged-looking, dual-toned disposition, with the aforementioned rim adding contrast. Accented by a tasteful, trim band of Ivorite for an elegant dose of brightness, this piece is adorned with a beautiful, hand-cut stem of mesmerizing blue and green intermingling colors for one fine-looking, functional and durable pipe.-Angela Robertson
