SMOOTH FREEHAND SMOKING PIPE - BIG AMERICAN STYLE
Here you are seeing another charming creation from the Polish master Piontek. This big American Freehand style is made of a big block of briar. The pipe offers pretty nice tight-lines of briar and partial bird-eye patterns. What makes the pipe more interesting is the charming finish. The bright staining of the pipe is very remarkable. As you can see in the pictures, the quality of the briar is very high and you can hardly find even a single small dot on the texture, indicating the great effort and attention of the pipe maker to chose the best briar for this shape. The pipe exhibits the spiral way of carving from both side with almost unbelievable acrobatic structure. With the regards of the Bowl volume (21x45 mm), this creation can be the best option for the professional smokers who admire the big and high quality pipes. This beautiful pipe comes with its own pouch.
