Richard Friedman Unsmoked Brandy Shaped Pipe W/ Bamboo Shank & Leather Pipe Sleeve
ITEM DESCRIPTION –
UNSMOKED! Richard Friedman is a long time American pipe maker who enjoys the reputation of making true “pipe art,” because of the beauty of his pieces, many of them with a sea creature theme. That’s quite understandable as Richard is a recently retired sea captain who offered week long charter trips on his Yacht in Alaska. This particular Brandy shaped pipe has superior flame grain around the bowl and a ton of swirling birdseye on the bowl base. The four knuckle bamboo shank is indeed a work of art, and Friedman has reinforced the bamboo with acrylic and the tenon of the thin, but sturdy stem is stainless steel for extra reinforcement. And is always the case with a Friedman pipe, you get a piece made from only the finest grade of briar available, and internal engineering that ensures a pleasurable smoke with each puff.
