Silver Gray: Smooth Yachtsman Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-775-0064
Silver Gray is a talented American artisan with thirty years of pipe-making experience, each of which are evident in this handsomely crafted Yachtsman. This piece, as is typical for the traditional form, features a tall, forward-canted bowl that's set to a subtly curved shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl here boasts a slanted rim that favors the fore over the aft, adding further dynamism to the form's profile. The aft side of the bowl slopes into the low-set transition, which gives birth to a round shank and a subtly downturned saddle stem. The bowl's rounded contours conform naturally to the hand, and the wide-open transition offers more than enough room to drape a digit. A smoky smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights an impressive showing of birdseye and cross grain about the bowl, its dark hues complemented by the cumberland saddle stem. Handsome, gestural, and incredibly charming, this piece is a fetching bit of craftsmanship from an immensely talented artisan.--Davin Hylton
