Description

Pipe Tristan is the name used by French artisan Tristan Lefebvre. Lefebvre is part of a new wave of up-and-coming hand made pipe carvers from the birthplace of briar, following in the footsteps of figures such as Alain Albuisson, Paul Lanier, and Pierre Morel Sr and Jr. Lefebvre credits a wide range of influences upon his pipe-making, such as modern greats from Italy and Denmark, such as Carlo Scotti’s Castello and Tom Eltang, as well as more unique sources of inspiration, such as the centuries-old hunting pipes native to Germany’s southern Bavarian region. As such, Tristan is equally at home crafting his own spin on the ’55,’ the hawbill, or the Danish Dublin as he is reviving the Ulmer Kloben – when he isn’t inventing his own shapes, that is.

Like his compatriot contemporaries Bruno Nuttens and Francois Dal, Tristan Lefrebvre’s pipes often display a revivalist inclination towards classic French shapes. But, like Nuttens and Dal, Lefebvre adds his own, modern twist to these shapes. The shaping on this Dublin is eminently traditional, with its tall, slightly conical bowl with a pronounced forward cant, along with its long pencil-shank. On the other hand, it also features a hand-cut blue ebonite stem. This pairs well with its simple, black stain over a light – though still nicely ring grained – sandblast. At 40 grams, the pipe may be a comfortable enough clencher for veteran smokers, but its length is also well suited for resting between one’s pointer finger and knuckles – as was the style, way back when.
