Due to the rarity of bowls this flawless, we are only making TWO smooths of this style, and there's only one left. Once they're sold out, they're sold out. I'll pull this catalog page and this pipe will no longer be available. If you want one, grab one soon!

Now that the boilerplate is out of the way...


What is a Gnome? To answer any questions, I've written a whole blog post on the subject of these new, elfin pipes. In short, they're smaller-than-usual Ligne Bretagnes - Featherweight, small bowls, pencil shanks, ideal for easy transport, walking while clenching, as e-cig alternatives, cigarette alternatives, and more. High quality smokes in century-old briar with the craftsmanship, originality, and pure fun that you'd expect from a Talbert workshop product.

This first shape offering is a an eight-paneled Prince style, slightly bent with a smooth polished finish with a gradient stain - The shank and bowl underside are stained a rich chocolate brown which gradually fades as it moves out onto and up the bowl, until the bowl rim and upper portion of the bowl are natural. It takes some careful sanding to make this look smooth! But, since we only had two stummels out of our entire stock of this shape that were of suitable quality to make smooths like this, I wanted them to be something special.
