Karim Smooth Lovat Handmade Briar Pipe, New [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


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.

This Lovat from Karim is a simple but perfectly executed Lovat shape. The bowl is covered in swirling flame grain, which is accentuated by a golden contrast stain, while the stem is ebonite, with a briar accent inlay. The cherry on top is the weight, as the pipe is only 38 grams. As such, it should be light enough to clench with relative ease, especially given its comfortable, ebonite stem.
