Luiz does not hide the fact that he gets a lot of inspiration from Danish pipemakers like Tom Eltang and Hans Former Nielsen. This is a beautiful interpretation of Tom Eltang's iconic Eskimo shape. Compared to the original its more chubby, robust and heavier.
The grain is incredible and the the smooth almost virgin finish let you see all details. It has a few natural sand spots. Everything is 100% handmade by Luiz Lavos.
