Yunus Ege is one of Turkeys most talented carvers and has helped in the training of the new generation. Yunus was born the son of Meerschaum miner in 1948. Yunus’s father worked closely with the late Yanik Senior (Father of Sadik Yanik) and after some persuasion got his son an apprentice with this master carver. From 1965 to 1968 Yunus was taught all the skills needed to not only carve the blocks, but the complete process. Once armed with the skills he worked along side some other fine carvers, constantly improving his skills. Then as a sign of his skill and respect with his mentor, taught the young Sadik Yanik along side his father who retired in late 1980s. You could say that Meerschaum is in the blood of the Ege family and this is shown in the work of master carver Yunus.
A very detailed and perfectly executed carving of 3 skulls, surrounded by snakes. This half bent pipe has been left smooth on the back and base, fitted with a marble styled acrylic stem. Made from the highest grade of Meerschaum “Sarisu” and finished with a beautiful blood red, acrylic mouthpiece. Comes complete with its own handmade, hard case. Ideal for keeping the pipe clean and intact, while out and about.
The porous nature of Meerschaum makes for a cool, dry and very clean smoke. Over time these pipes colour from yellow, orange, red, and amber with the smoke and nicotine the pipe absorbs. Due to this ability, Meerschaum pipes do not need breaking in and the cake (carbon build up) should be kept thin. Meerschaum is fragile, like any clay pipe and should be treated with care. If looked after these pipes will last not only years, but generations.
All of these pipes are one off's and totally handmade, so the one you see in the pictures, is the one you get! This pipe also comes with a hard case, protecting your pipe from knocks and for easy transport.
