About the Item

 

ASYMMETRIC SMOOTH DOUBLE SPHERE SMOKING PIPE

 

This beautiful smooth smoking pipe is designed and carved by Polish pipe maker Andrzej Piontek. One general point which is always obvious in his work is the briar grain by itself. He is mostly using the old Italian briar with absolute attention to the grain and this pipe is not an exception. Tight lines of briar in both sides of the both Chamber simply echo the beautiful shape of the pipe. This dark brown asymmetric pipe has another feature which amplify its beauty. Perfect forming of the both Chambers is very remarkable and bird eye finish particularly on the both Chambers' top show-off on this item. Reddish-black Cumberland mouthpiece has a short Stem and Bit, however it has a large tenon which makes is absolutely firm in the Mortise. If you are the fan of the Calabash-shaped smoking pipe you may consider this beautiful pipe as a good option.
