Wojtek Pastuch: Smooth Vintage Cutty (0860)
Product Number: 002-811-0034
While Wotjek's more avant-garde Freehand work might turn the most heads, it's the young Polish carver's skill with the classics that's always captivated my interest. This Vintage Cutty, for example, is simply a shape chart perfect rendition of the original clay design, brought to the artisanal stage through modern materials and crafting techniques (crafted from briar, it's far lighter than any clay pipe, weighing just over 20 grams). The twin spurs below the transition allow the elegant piece to sit steadily on a flat surface, and the bowl itself is plump and slightly tapered down from the rim, lending it a floral aesthetic that's complemented by the reed-like shank and stem. Presented in a warm, Bruyere-like stain, it's a gorgeous tribute to one of the very first pipe shapes — and a must have for any serious pipe collector.- Andrew Wike
