The “Gandalf fossil edition” is the most rare edition of the Gandalf Pipe, a churchwarden entirely made of bog oak.
The ancient wood out of which the bowl and the stem are made dates back to trees lived thousands of years ago.
The growth rings are visible on the bowl, telling the story of the tree, which has been buried in the subsoil for hundreds of years. Its spirit revives today within this precious object.
On the back of the pipe are two mother-of-pearl dots, which embellish the pipe and guide the correct alignment of the stem.
Mortise reinforced with briar for better stability of the stem-bowl junction.
This pipe can be made on commission. It’s included a finely handmade wooden stand to expose the pipe (example in the photos).
