Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Full House Poker Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-560-0375

One of the most innovative pipe makers working today, Werner Mummert fashions traditional shapes with some consistency, but he's perhaps better known for his experimental, boundary-pushing designs. Even when considering his more avant-garde work, its important to point out that his style isn't simply experimentation for experimentation's sake. No, underneath his unique style is a bedrock of high-quality engineering and an understanding of what makes a pipe functional as well as handsome.

Though rather traditional in terms of its construction, this Poker nevertheless showcases Mummert's eclectic style and exacting finishing work. Shape-wise, this piece is a tried and true rendition of the classic form, offering a tall, cylindrical bowl that's positioned at the fore of a sleek, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl's flat heel enables the entire composition to sit without the aid of a stand, making this piece an attractive and practical desk pipe. What sets this piece apart, however, from say, an English-style Poker, is it's dress, which comes in the form of a crisp sandblast interspersed with etchings of playing card suits. A diamond, spade, heart, and club adorn the bowl's frame, with each symbol stained to mirror how it would look on a playing card. The subtle addition of the playing card symbols showcases Mummert's playful sensibility — with the shape's dress and title, "Full House Poker", being an obvious pun.
