Silver Gray: Smooth Bent Egg
Product Number: 002-775-0054
The diamond shank is most traditionally considered an aspect of the Bulldog shape, matching well with the tapered elements of that design's bowl. Silver Gray, however, has consistently enjoyed pairing diamond shanks with other bowl varieties, having combined characteristics of the Hawkbill, Poker, and Egg with that shank's rigid demeanor. Such a design cue adds contrast against a rounded bowl, and that aesthetic is well appreciated in this bent Egg rendition. When viewed from above, the shank expands toward the transition, much like the American carver's Eskimo bent Egg shape, and the form transitions seamlessly in the bowl's curvaceous form, not missing a step or making the stummel's elements seem disparate or noncongruent, despite the inherent contrast. Further harmonizing this piece is the color palette: An auburn stain highlights the briar's stunning grain patterns, and it's perfectly complemented by the cumberland stem's ruddy tones, making for a beautifully cohesive composition of quality smoking capabilities.-Truett Smith
