Lasse Skovgaard: Smooth Acorn
Product Number: 002-327-0713
A charming Acorn from Danish artisan pipe maker Lasse Skovegaard, this pipe offers strong aesthetic appeal and style in compact, pocket-friendly proportions. A second-generation pipe maker, Lasse is the son of Benni Jørgensen and polished his craft working alongside Teddy Knudsen in the W.Ø. Larsen workshop. He now produces fine pipes under his own name with an organic style all his own, a portfolio of which this Acorn is a fine example.
Proportionately shorter in stature than many Acorn shapes, it displays a very gradual, sweeping heel and sleek rounding at the rim. The transition is seamless, yet clear, smoothly becoming the shank in a way that invites thumb draping. The shank bears its own unique character, forming a compressed teardrop in cross section, with a clean ridgeline running along the entire left flank. Lasse has given it a glossy smooth light auburn finish, and fittingly so, as the cross grain boasts a superb array of birdseye, especially resplendent on the right flank. A gentle and supple curve that nestles perfectly into your palm, the stummel is paired to a broad stem of understated beauty, a lithe saddle mouthpiece that glides effortlessly to a hand shaped and funneled lip button. If you can bear to put this pipe in your pocket, it will happily comply, but I'll wager you'd rather just hold it and look at it. Of course, with such a light weight, it should do great in a clench as well.- Joel Balyeat
