Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash Poker with Maple Burl
Product Number: 002-560-0220
Reverse Calabash Pokers have become a signature design from Werner Mummert, ranging from modernist renditions to ones that are more traditionally inclined like this particular piece. It's a style we've seen before from Mummert, the German artisan tweaking its proportions or playfully experimenting with contrasting color palettes. This piece is comparatively reserved, yet continues Werner's unique style and functionalist approach to pipe design, prioritizing engineering and craftsmanship before anything else. The tall, cylindrical bowl sits sturdily upon flat surfaces and houses a capacious chamber within. The shank is quite thick and robust, imbued with reverse Calabash drilling to provide a cooler, drier smoke as it collects any extra moisture that accumulates over the smoking process. Mummert has then finished it in crisp sandblast, bringing out a stunning display of ring grain underneath a fiery contrast stain that's then handsomely complemented by a maple burl accent band around the stem base.- Jeffery Sitts
