I’ve got one of these shapes in inventory already, so, obviously, make another one. But I like them – They’re simple and rugged and have an unusual place in my fondness because this bowl shape was one of the first designs I made for myself to test-smoke back when we first bought all our stock and such in France. I wanted some experience with what would eventually become Ligne Bretagne, so I made several different shapes and smoked them all quite a bit. These were a favorite because I prefer bents, but also because it was such a sturdy and practical thing… A bent that passes a cleaner easily, wide-but-short bowl for smoking just about anything well, and a bowl shape that fits the hand nicely.
I made this one as an example for our Patreon folks as a possible “Shape of the Month” for next month or later. I think the tapered stem may go with the straightforward, rustic design a bit better than the longer freehand stem on the red one I posted earlier. Something about it just seems like a hunter’s pipe and I like the simpler look for it, even if I did forget “simple” and went all-out on the rustication for it, giving it a wilder-than normal carving texture.
