Description

Karim Pipes are made by Abdul Karim, an artisan pipe-maker based in Tangerang, Indonesia. A pipe-maker since 2016, Karim is part of an emerging 21st century movement of Indonesian artisan carvers, including Wandi Riyadi, Deden Hendan Durahman of Caxra Pipes, Karim’s mentor, Edy Bima, and Karim’s mentee, Bennie Joe, whose pipes MBSD has also sold. Karim carves most of his pipes freehand, and is often inspired by wildlife, leading to the creation of figural and organically styled designs. Karim also produces more traditional shapes with distinct inflections of his own choosing, such as his popular calabash pipes.

One can see a great deal of inspiration from Tom Eltang in many of Karim’s pipes. This poker could be described as a respectful homage to Eltang’s functionalist poker shape and revival of rustication, but it also has plenty to distinguish it from Eltang’s works. Karim’s is closer to the traditional poker, and almost borders on a tankard shape, while also adding a brass faux-spigot to the design to give it an extra touch of class. The pipe is fairly lightweight, at only 40 grams, meaning it should clench comfortably for veteran smokers, but it also fees perfect in the hand, due to the poker’s innate ergonomic shaping.
