Richard Friedman Unsmoked Danish Style Dublin Shaped Pipe W/ Facet Shank & Leather Pipe Sleeve
ITEM DESCRIPTION –
UNSMOKED! This beauty is as good as it gets! Very remindful of the shape that the late Danish master Poul Ilsted made famous. A smashing shape with facet shank and grain that will bug your eyes! 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. As for this beauty, the elegant Danish style straight grain pipe that he created with this piece is mesmerizing! I love not only the shape, but how about that straight grain around the bowl wafting upwards into a handsome birdseye pattern around the rim? And the very difficult to execute facet shank is also a work of art. Finally, as 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.
