Bondarev Pipes / 2013 / Sandblasted Elephant Foot
Sandblasted Elephant Foot 2013-10-10
This is my 59th smoking pipe.
Elephant foot is a freehand pipe shape with bird eyes on front and back of the bowl. The shape is very simular to pickaxe, so different pipe makers choose different names for same pipes.
Sandblasted pipes are pipes, finished in sandblasting machine. The air blast with sand makes an interesting relief, showing annual rings of the briar, which are not noticable on smooth finish.
Ebonite (vulcanite) stem is more soft and comfortable for teeth, than acrylic. So I prefer to use ebonite in pipes, which are short and light enough for smoking in teeth.
