Details: Olive wood pipe-set from approx. 5o0 year old olive tree,cut and dried for 5 more years at my workshop, mouthpiece hand-cut ebonit,pipe cleaner passes easily , Vsected bit for a comfortable light airflow.
The‘Obsidian‘ application ring inlay with Moonstone and Amethyst fragments is a novelty .I used my experience as a dental technician by creating a composite inlay that will keep a smooth polished surface while wear resistant during years of usage.This composite application keeps its heat sealed hard polish permanently while underlining the natural texture created by different kinds of semiprecious stones.
The full-bodied olivewood pipe-stand is mount-able .The arm is fixated to the base by a perfectly fitted cork plug.To reassure a lasting and firm connection,the cork-plug has been glued from within by a 10 mm wooden tenon and glue-plugged into the arm.The pipe can be placed in two positions,regularly and turned upside down at the opposite side for drying out after smoking.
Yet another small novelty is the ‘Comfort grip‘ cork insert on this pipe-set .I have been exploring for a while the possibilities on how to develop a pipe stand that has the ability to hold the mouthpiece firmly remain soft enough in regard to the smooth surface of the Ebonite stem during years of usage.Cork was the answer,it holds the pipe in a firm’ shock absorbent‘ grip and without the slightest scratch while releasing .There are no random slips anymore,the pipe stands firmly in its elevated place due to a perfectly durable grip .( Patent Pending)
The tamper has been carved in regard to the whole looks of the set,from olivewood and Ebony.Both parts are firmly interconnected by a heat resilient glued tenon.
