An excellent example of Victor Yashtylov's impressive skill as an artisan, this Lumberman is done in a soft blast that creates a less assertive hand-feel. I've always wondered why a logo on the stem is necessary, since, with majority of pipes, the gap between stem and shank is immediately noticeable when the stem is turned 180. This pipe, however, is the antithesis. The stem lines up perfectly with the shank either way you turn it, and if looking down the slot while turning that draft hole remains a perfect circle. Engineering doesn't get much more precise than this.
