Ramses’ Tattoos: (SOLD)
The ancient pharaoh himself wanted smoking to be easy, and like any good thinker, he searched for inspiration. Standing out on the veranda one night, he looked up to the heavens. There hung the crescent moon, golden in a spangled sky and suspended seemingly without effort. The next morning, his finest artisans received a summons to court. And the rest is history.*
*Not actual history.
– Panegyrics by Adam Whipple
The Ramses pipe is one of the most comfortable pipes I’ve ever smoked. It hangs effortlessly and almost unnoticed. The Ramses shape was originally designed by the great Bo Nordh, and has since been carved by many wonderful pipemakers, who have made their own contributions to the design. In this particular design, I took inspiration from Peter Heding and Alex Florov, who both make wonderful Ramses pipes. To date, this is the largest Ramses I have ever made.
This pipe offers some great straight grain wrapping around the belly of the bowl. It terminates into bird eye on the back panel. The “tattoos” were hand carved with Egyptian stylings.
The stem was hand carved from German Cumberland Ebonite, and was fitted with a comfort fit button, which makes it comfortable and easy to hold in your mouth. As with all my pipes, I’ve opened this pipe up properly to give it the the right air flow to provide a cool dry smoke.
