Former: Sandblasted Bent Egg

Product Number: 002-195-0006

Hans "Former" Nielsen's 60 years of pipe making experience is evident in the deft execution and phenomenal design attributes of this bent Egg. In profile, the undercurve dominates the piece's flow from shank end to rim in an arc that is echoed by the upper shank and flaring to the step of the stem. In all, it is light and lifting of heel, smooth and sweeping of transition and shank, and subtly forward in stance overall. A true study in Former's style and breadth of experience, showcasing so many of the signature cues which ground the Danish classical approach to pipemaking.

Every detail is carefully considered and contextualised within the broader composition; even the half-saddle bit serves a larger purpose within the piece, completing the silhouette's parabolic arc with a final, sinuous flourish while simultaneously mirroring that lower arc. The feel in hand is soft and comfortable, yet quite stimulating as well, courtesy of Former's deftly executed sandblast, resulting in rings of rippling growth rings undulating up from the heel and toward the back of the bowl where they terminate in a display of blasted birdseye.
