Details

It only takes a brief glance to recognize that this handmade from American carving artist, Joseph Skoda, is a something different.  We've been looking at it for over a week since it arrived and every time our eyes fall upon it, another detail stands out.  The rim is smooth and obviously very wide, but the color has a mossy tone that is a compliment to the richer brown underneath.  Joseph uses a proprietary Gecko finish by carving the smooth briar with a special tool that creates this craggy and tactile effect, as if an oasis has formed over a stretch of dried earth.  Trimmed with acrylic, oval shank inserts are wedge shaped producing an exaggeration of a higher degree of bend, all composed with a ring of ivorite and another on the stem, like a rhythmic procession forcing the eye back and forth along the pipe.  Even the very thin bead around the rim is superbly articulated making this an awe inspiring smoker that isn't just gorgeous, but made to be a favorite when both in use and on display.
