This is a big one!
Freehand with egg shape, hand carved without any lathe.
High tobacco capacity for long smokes.
Beautiful straight grain and lots of bird eyes in the bottom of a well dried and seasoned briar from the forest hills surrounding
the Mediterranean sea near Barcelona.
Has some wood black marks, all natural, doesn’t affect the smoke as with any other of my pipes. Thick walls to give you a uniform temperature all around, won’t have any hotspots.
Ergonomic form to fit well in your hand. Asymetric shape to give it a more freehand style.
Black acrylic mouthpiece with a teflon cone, without any filter.
I sign all pipes with my trade mark brand: a little circle piece of “antalis” (a genus of tusk shell) and Mediterranean red coral inside.
This pipe reminds me to:
The Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex) also known as whale-head or shoe-billed stork, is a very large
stork-like bird. It derives its name from its massive shoe-shaped bill.
It lives in tropical east Africa in large swamps from Sudan to Zambia.
