|Signature, Amalfi "Superia"
I was asked to carve full bent pipe and finaly found the right block of briar to do so. This is a true full bent pipe and will comfortably hang just bellow your chin.
The grain is stunning all around the bowl and on the shank, and there are plenty of birds eyes on the bottom. The Olive wood extention works well and compliments hand cut Cumberland stem rather nicely and I have no problem placind the pipe in the "Superia" class.
As for the shape, I would call it a Freehand full bent Blowfish, Jan's style...
It is hard to take photos of fully upright pipe as I run out of space in my viewer and on some shots the pipe is slightly tilted, but rest asured this is a full bent pipe.
I am very pleased with the result and am sure this pipe will find a new home very soon :-)
