Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash Poker with Tamper
Product Number: 002-560-0235
Known for his inventive approach to pipe making and one-of-a-kind designs, Werner Mummert once again flexes his creative muscles with this reverse Calabash Poker. The paneled bowl is perhaps the most traditional aspect of this piece, expertly sandblasted and finished in a crimson-hued contrast stain. At the shank is where things get particularly interesting. Made of tempered glass, the shank functions as a see-through version of the reverse Calabash's characteristic condensation chamber, enabling onlookers to enjoy the smoke swirling inside. The glass is extremely sturdy and heat resistant, as well neutral — so no need to worry about it imparting unwanted aroma and flavor to the smoke. To make cleaning a breeze, Mummert has attached the shank to the bowl via metal springs, allowing for removal of the shank without fear of misplacing it. Furthermore, it makes for quite a striking, Steam Punk aesthetic, merging function and whimsy. This piece also comes complete with its own tamper, which is smooth finished, accented with metal springs to complement the pipe's aesthetics, and features a dottle pick concealed in the fuselage.-Truett Smith
