Wolfgang Becker: Smooth Stetson with Bamboo (Signature) (01.15)

Product Number: 002-554-0007

Extremely high-quality designs, extremely low production. That's one recipe for greatness, and one that Wolfgang Becker has followed to a "T." He meticulously crafts each and every piece, never cutting corners or accepting second best. His "Double Wolf Paw," for example, used to be his highest grade, yet he sought to push himself and his creative abilities even further.

That determination led us to this: the very first Wolfgang "Signature." An even more prestigious designation than his "Double Wolf Paw," this is the pinnacle of the master's creative expression. The abbreviated length works to emphasize the stout proportions of the stummel and chubby bamboo shank extension, while still keeping to that playful dynamism that defines so much of his work. As the title suggests, in profile, the domed, stepped rim emulates the look of an old-fashioned Stetson hat — creating quite an evocative form, unlike anything else we've seen.

Given Wolfgang's meticulous and careful production and the fact that this is the first batch of briars from Wolfgang we've received in close to a year, who knows when we'll next see another Wolfgang briar going further. If you've ever wanted to add a briar from this German master to your collection, now's the time.
