Michal Novak Boutique Master Pipe Maker:
Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we are always searching for unique products that set the smoking world on fire (pun intended) and add a bit of excitement to a this traditional pastime. We are delighted to have come across Michal Novak who’s work astounded us. Nobody can deny that Michal thinks out of the box when he starts carving one of his masterpieces yet the quality of his work and attention to detail truly compliments the history of pipe smoking. Every time Michal releases a new batch of masterpieces for public viewing he seems to take innovation to a whole new level.
Michal Novak Freehand:
As all of MIchal Novaks work is freehand and totally unique there is not much more we can say that pictures can’t. As with most of Michals pipes we cannot fully capture the beauty of the pipe in an image so let your imagination go wild and we promise you will not be disappointed.
The Novak 13057 is something totally new to our pipe racks. As if Michals work wasn’t exciting enough he has now introduced some Olive Woods to his workshop. This is the first time we have stocked any Olive Woods and quite simply “WOW!” As lovers of Briar this just send our compass spinning! The grain and natural beauty of Olive Wood is simply stunning and with the smoking qualities we are hearing about why are there not more Olive woods about.
Olive wood is a harder wood than Briar, which means it will take more breaking in than Briar to produce a good cake but the effort should be much rewarded. And the aesthetics…….. well we’re sure you have your own eyes!
The 13057 is another stunning masterpiece by Michal as yet again he manages to encapsulate the grain with the flow of the carving. The pipe is a more moderate size for Michals work, which will suit the smoker who wants a piece of the Novak experience but doesn’t have the time for large bowl fills. The apple shaped bowl is very comfortable in the hand. We will note that the bowl size will not suit the few of you out there with Extra Large palms but for the majority this will be a cracking pipe.
Hand Made Ebonite Stem:
Ebonite is the premium material of choice for pipe stems. It is softer on the teeth than Acrylic but does not yellow or stain as easily as Vulcanite. Each one is hand crafted to fit the unique shapes that Michal Novak creates.
