SMALL ELEPHANT FEET SMOKING PIPE WITH BAMBOO EXTENTION
This new stunning small Elephant Feet is our first impression about Russian carver Andrey Cherepanov' work. The Elephant Feet has an extension of a nice and beautiful bamboo with white mouthpiece which make it very special in the category of Elephant Feet pipes. The first interesting point that catch the attention about this creation is the absolute tight grain of the briar. Charming lines of briar in both sides, Rim, and Shank of the pipe together with the fine bird eye finish in the front Heel and Bowl, turned out the pipe very beautiful. Next is about the general structure and the weight of the pipe. Although It exhibit the Elephant Feet, the pipe has a very light weight which make it very easy to hold and smoke. The color of finish was performed in the perfect attention by artisan, so that the Elephant-Bamboo expresses the fire-like finish. With chose of white mouthpiece, this pipe is for sure a good sample of briar-bamboo-ebonite combination.
