Tonni Nielsen: Partially Sandblasted Asymmetric Acorn
Product Number: 002-192-0290
This Acorn, in profile, is more or less straightforward; however, this pipe is much more than simply an Acorn perched high on its transition. Tonni has elected to scoop the right flank inward towards its waist, from the smoker's perspective, while leaving the left flank rounded over. The smooth, dark walnut rim continues with a line beginning at the fore of the bowl that follows along the bottom of the piece until terminating at the end of the shank. Speaking of the end of the shank, the choice to cut a flare away from the straight saddle and towards the bowl is the sort of playful detail that screams "Tonni" to me. It's the inverse of what one would expect: a straight shank with a flared saddle stem. It's clear that he had some fun with this one!- Shane Ireland
