Yang Kun (YMGK Pipes) - Grade 4 Freehand Apple

Yang Kun (YMGK Pipes) - Grade 4 Freehand Apple


About The Artist:

Yang Kun of YMGK Pipes has been quietly producing high end artisan pipes full time from his small shop in Liuzhou since 2012. In that time Yang has had the luxury of working alongside some of China’s best pipe makers, gaining valuable experience and accelerating his skill tremendously in a short amount of time. His early years focused on fine tuning his own versions of traditional Danish designs, but over the last few years his work has headed in a more unique Asian inspired direction. Yang uses only high grade Italian and Grecian briar, and German ebonite. His pipes bear his unique footprint logo (in honor of his son’s birth) and high grade pieces additionally carry his stamped signature. His grading scale is from 1-4, with 4 being his most exceptional pieces.

About The Pipe:

This Grade 4 freehand apple pays homage to one of Yang’s biggest Danish influences, Kurt Balleby. Of course Yang also puts his own unique flair on this piece, elongating the shank and creating some extra eye catching lines around the parameter of the base. Gorgeous straight grain is everywhere on this piece, with the underside displaying beautiful flowing birdseye. Generous Group 4 bowl size. Includes sleeve.
