Scottie Piersel: Smooth Pencil Shank Speeding Belge Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-786-0180
The Belge is an iconic shape that hearkens back to the days when pipes were made of clay rather than briar. Historically, they were canted and rendered in lengthy, willowy proportions, as is this briar offering from Scottie Piersel. The tall, forward-urging bowl is quite robust and seems ready to sprint away, the protruding lip of the oval-shaped rim exceeding far past the gently uplifted heel. The American artisan's signature pencil shank and elegantly tapering stem comprise most of this pipe's length, the delicate but durable shank imbued with a stainless steel sleeve. The stummel is dressed in one of Scottie's smooth, warm finishes that emphasizes the briar's handsome grain, including beautiful birdseye along the bowl's fore. This robust pipe evokes a streamlined, sleek profile that's accentuated by a cream-colored ring at the shank end, contrasting the hand-cut, brindled stem for a truly captivating presentation.-Gabriel Bass
