Argang Brown Ale (1897)
This muscular, broad-bowled bent Pot from 4th Generation corresponds to Erik Stokkebye's 1897 blend, which honors the birthdate of Erik Stokkebye's grandfather, Erik Paul, the second generation of the Stokkebye family's long standing tobacco tradition. As a pipe, the "1897" was designed for Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, and it's a design that beautifully reflects Peder's recognizable shaping aesthetic: The bowl is thick-walled and full-bodied, contrasted by the comparatively slender shank-and-stem combination's elegant curvature. Such shaping combines for a pipe that fits substantially in hand, with a wide presence for wrapped fingers, that also hangs comfortably hands-free.
Appropriately named, the Brown Ale finish dresses Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation pipes in a low-depth sandblast and a stain of smoldering reddish-brown hues not unlike the deep, amber color of that traditional style of beer. Similar to the pipe's shaping, this finishing style reflects the signature aesthetic of Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, known for his contrasting stains and use of vibrant color palettes. This pipe is commended further by an ornate, bronze accent band, while the acrylic stem tastefully complements the stummel.
