DESCRIPTION: “A Rose is a rose is a rose”. With apologies to Gertrude Stein, life is rarely that simple and when it comes to pipe concepts and executions, we can pretty much toss the declaration out the window. Unless a pipe guy has been living in a cave all of his life, he carries around an idea of what calabash should look like. I know I do, and this amazing Revyagin certainly wasn’t it. Yet this amazing bee is a calabash, albeit one with a fascinating twist. Whereas a ‘standard’ calabash has a detachable bowl and a large space for smoke to swirl/cool directly underneath, this chamber within this beauty lies within the massive shank! As you can see, this out-of-the-box thinking provides the smoking advantages of a traditional ‘bash, while allowing a far greater range of shaping expression. The paw-appeal of this briar is as superlative as the shape is imaginative, and that Rubenesque shank is finished with a delightfully thin bit of perfect proportion.
Your new Misha sports a stellar stain and grain, with a universal coverage on the sides by either an angel hair straight or wind driven, virga-fine wisps, and birdseye atop. Below? How about some of the finest, Nihon style plateau that you could ask for?! Remember the scene from “Crocodile Dundee”, where in response to Mick’s partner concern about a mugger having a knife, Mick looks at the blade, ‘That’s not a knife’ (pulls out the Aussie equivalent of a Bowie). ‘THIS is a knife!’. Keep this pipe ready for when a discussion about calabashes comes up. Highly recommended.
How To Buy?
You'll see I don't have links to PayPal to buy a pipe or accessories on my site, I don't like the idea of hitting a button and buying a pipe. Call me old fashioned but I want to know who's buying a pipe from me. Here is How to Buy »
