The Novelist e-pipe has a really remarkable briar wood grain texture. The straight lines are all around the billiard shaped bowl from the bottom to the top. It is quite a rare outcome. This was perfect opportunity for me to try another contrast staining technique and the result is beautiful. At the client’s request the Novelist e-pipe utilizes Innokin Zlide tank which is really easy to operate. To match this combo I’ve crafted also black acrylic stem and rusticated black briar button. As usual the power for an e-pipe of this size is provided by one 18350 Li-ion battery cell.
