99%的烟斗工匠无法制造出完美的烟斗 

 高等级的烟斗工匠可说是万中无一,而他们总是会在作品当中展现他们那过人的天赋。你知道吗,其实只有很少的烟斗工匠能够将所有的烟斗组件制造至完美的境界。

只有少过1%的烟斗工匠能够将所有的烟斗组件制造至完美状态;而剩余99%的烟斗工匠只精于制造烟斗其中2或3个的组件。虽然他们只精于制造其中数个组件,但是这已经足够令他们的作品被归类成为高档的烟斗作品。

 1个烟斗可被分为数个不同的部分。高级的烟斗工匠能够在这7个主要的部分当中精钻于制造其中2至3个组件。
1.  卓越的口柄工艺
2. 卓越的工程技术
3. 卓越的平衡感
4. 卓越的形塑技巧
5. 卓越的加工处理
6. 妥善地向我们展示新点子的卓越能力
7. 制造出1个完整和拥有100%亲和力设计的卓越能力

 大部分烟斗工匠的能力只会在上述提及的部分完成2项标准。

每一个烟斗工匠都有他们各自不同的强项和弱点。而他们全部都会在几个领域中表现不错,并在2至3个组件中表现优异,而对于其余的烟斗组件制造水平则是无法达致卓越程度的要求。其实他们并没有错,而且这还是一种很普遍的现象,更是众所周知的。

 在我所收集的烟斗当中,有些在喷砂处理中展示了卓越的技术,而也有一些在口柄制作里呈现了超凡的手艺。我也有一些烟斗拥有卓越的平衡感,而其有些则是有高超的工程技术。若要寻找一个能够在每一个领域和组件制造中达致完美境界的烟斗工匠,那将会是凤毛麟角。

 我们时常能够在不同的烟斗作品中找到瑕疵。

通常,一位高级的烟斗工匠会在上述提及的能力当中制造出中等或中上等级的作品。这就是为什么他们的作品会被评为“高档货”的原因。但真正完美的烟斗作品是可遇不可求的。

对于这种情况,我并不认为这是问题,而我也希望这个消息并不会吓着你。你,身为一位收藏家,只要了解了这个情况,那它就不会为你带来任何的障碍和问题了。一旦你了解了实情后,你将不会为你所购买的烟斗觉得不值,或感到后悔。

这种奇特的现象并不只发生在烟斗的世界里。实际上,在我们所购买任何“非常特别”的东西时也会发生这种奇特的现象。这就如我们在购买的汽车或其他物品是遇到的情况一样,而在购买烟斗时也是一样。举例来说,法拉利跑车拥有卓越的外形,它为我们展示了它全新的点子和精湛的设计。但是,它的工程技术又会是怎么样的呢?据我所闻,法拉利时常会出现问题,并且它的维修费也非常高。虽然如此,但它所拥有的卓越外形和设计已经足够让它成为相同产品当中的“高档货”。

一般来说,就是因为一些烟斗工匠在某一组件或领域当中展示了他的卓越能力,所以才让作品脱颖而出。这就是他们的品牌。这就是他们引以为傲的地方。这就是烟斗工匠在这个红海的市场当中创造蓝海的方法。只要了解每一个烟斗工匠的强项,那么收藏家就能为他们所要收藏的类型和收藏的理由做出选择。

 我认为这些资讯绝对是非常棒的。这就是我们在多年鉴赏烟斗的经验中所学到的。而现在这份经验也成为了我们学习烟斗的基础知识。它已经变成我们的智慧。如果你正想要开始收藏烟斗,那么请你将我的智慧化为己用,并将它应用在收藏的过程中。

 这些公开的资讯,对收藏家或是烟斗工匠都很有用。话虽如此。。。但我希望没有人会因为我的坦白而变得伤心。完美的东西是非常罕有的。我们必须接受这个事实,绝对没有人或东西是完美的。我们所有人都曾有犯过错呢。

身为收藏家,我们必须接受不完美的存在,然后加以警惕。

 只要有了这番理解,我们就可以在我们要进行购买和收藏时做出更精明的打算和更明智的决定。我们了解得越多,就越容易为我们的收藏库做出最好的选择。你知道这为什么那么重要吗?因为我们可以在购买烟斗后避免出现后悔的感觉。当我们知道我们喜欢的是什么和为什么要选择它时,那么我们就会做出最好的决定。我们可以专注于那些能够让我们开心的事。如果口柄稍有瑕疵,我们也会欣然接受。而我们所购买的烟斗在其他领域上还是会令我们的收藏热血沸腾。最终就能找到平衡了(在心智上)。

如果你旨在追求完美的烟斗,那么这也会是一个很有趣的寻宝过程。你可以预期自己将会经历很多的尝试与错误,甚至花很多钱购买很多的烟斗,但在这个过程中,你是有可能会找到完美或是近乎完美的烟斗。若是实现了这个目标,确实会让人倍感成就。

这个学习过程是我们必定会经历的。当你知道的越多,就会有越少的烟斗令你失望,然后就会得到越多的收藏乐趣。

平静下来,抽一口烟吧。
