|François Dal – Handmade 2019 – (on stem) δ|
There are creations that a pipemaker can never forget, these pipes that mark you as milestones in the timeline. This beautiful Dublin is one of them! For the record, this is a pipe made in common with a friend smoker. Architect training, he provided me with several sketches of shapes by specifying me his preferences. So we spent a day together at the workshop, discussing the shape and choosing the appropriate tray. At the end of the day, the stummel was not finished but the general shape was perfectly acquired, identical to its sketch. It took several weeks to get back to work and finish it as it should, but the result pleases me as much as it does to its new owner. The beauty of this model lies not only in the presence of the straight flames, but especially in my opinion, by the shape of this shank stretched out like an arrow bandaged on the bow, this conicity which starts at the junction with the head and extends into straight line to the slot of the stem. Of course, luck was also on our side since the wood has no defect. The stem is made from a rod of ebonite in ‘tan’ color, specially chosen for its sobriety, so as not to overload the eye. It is adorned as requested with a small boxwood ring. The shank is flattened on its underside, strengthening its tense side. The floc is teflon and the rod drilled to 4.2mm. The slot of the stem (concave cut) is open in V for optimal draw. This Italian briar benefited from one and a half years of drying from the supplier and another two years in my reserve.
