Tao: Smooth Bulldog with Amberoid Stem Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-748-0061

Jens "Tao" Nielsen was a sailor first, then spent time in the military before turning to pipe making and an apprenticeship with Erik Nørding. Now, with over 50 years of experience in the industry, Tao has his own unique style, leaning heavily on his Danish design roots, but with an often stout, highly functional penchant. His pieces are in high demand worldwide due to his precise shaping and attention to detail, and this Nosewarmer straight Bulldog is an excellent example of his work.

At less than five inches long, this piece is perfect for on-the-go smoking, its reduced size and light weight making comfortable, both in hand and clenched between the teeth. The diamond shank's firm, structural lines extend through the transition and lend structural definition to the heel, which looks like ship's prow when viewed from the fore. Additionally, the shank juxtaposes dramatic angles against the bowl's supple curves, creating a bold, eye-catching silhouette. A warm smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights brilliant flame grain along the bowl's flanks, as well as stunning birdseye along the rounded rim. An Amberoid stem tops everything off and provides a touch of vibrant color to the shape's otherwise reserved palette.
