Alexander Penkov - Blasted Tornado Sitter

Alexander Penkov - Blasted Tornado Sitter


About The Artist:

Alexander Penkov is one of our all time favorite Russian carvers, we couldn’t be more excited to offer his gorgeous work in America. Alexander has been making pipes since 2005 and in that time has achieved a master level craftsmanship while studying alongside some of the most famous pipe makers in the industry. His work speaks for itself, with impeccable fit and finish, top grade materials, and creative styles that are uniquely his. His use of buddha bamboo and mammoth in his famous nosewarmer calabash shape have gained him much fame, particularly in the overseas pipe market in Asia.

About The Pipe:

This blasted tornado is quite the unique piece. The long shank shows some amazing movement leading into a swept cut, asymmetrical stem. The sitter design completes the tornado profile beautifully. The whole piece is covered in a gorgeous blast and as an added bonus Alex used vintage nitrocellulose stock to trim out the stem/shank union. Truly a one of a kind piece that looks like its moving even when standing still. Manno briar, handcut Nikko ebonite stem. Includes embossed leather pouch handmade by famed leatherworker Claudio Albieri.
