Suhr: Smooth Bent Apple with Horn
Product Number: 002-821-0024
Suhr pipes are handmade by Johannes Rasmussen in Denmark. The Suhr name dates back to 1940s Denmark, specifically to a pipe repair shop of the same name that later became a manufacturer, employing the likes of Sixten Ivarsson and Poul Rasmussen. Johannes now carries on the Suhr name with his artisan pipes, having trained under Tom Eltang during the onset of career — coming full circle, as his grandmother, Anne Julie, was instrumental in the early stages of Tom's career.
This bent Apple from Johannes is steeped in traditional Danish design cues, featuring an affably rounded, subtly tapered bowl paired to a lithely bent shank-and-stem combination. The bowl is rife with supple curves and beautifully shaped to maximize the briar's grain orientation, with streaks of vertical grain rising in concert with the bowl's soft taper and made even more striking by the vibrant contrast stain. Prominent cheeking is evident around the transition, maintaining the bowl's curvaceous disposition and further accentuating its plump base. An understated, dark-hued band of horn accents the shank end before transitioning to the gradually tapering stem, which promises comfort and is engineered to deliver an exceptional smoking experience.- Jeffery Sitts
