The Listener: (SOLD)
Who could say why they come to him? He himself is a mystery—a man with a knowing gaze and an impenetrable life story. He seems to be that person who’s ear is worthy of your problem. What’s more, he seems to care.
Of course, a man like this cannot be forever looking for a place to set his pipe. His eyes are utterly fixed upon the poor soul before him. No tragic tale is complete without a gentle listener, after all, and a listener must pay attention. There is something in the smoke that wreathes that humble face. You cannot quite place it, but you know it is there.
– Panegyrics by Adam Whipple
This pipe makes a nice sitter. It was blasted to show the ring grain. The top was finished partially smooth with some natural plateaux as well, and shows some birdseye. The pipe was carved from a fine piece of Italian briar and is mounted atop some beautiful horn. The natural bamboo toasted to add color. The stem was hand cut out of German Ebonite and fashioned with a comfort bit. 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.
