Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Ardor Goccia Giant Oom Paul with Silver Band (DR) (2007)  

Product Number: 004-006-8618

The second Goccia, or "tear drop", we've received from Ardor, this one fully carved, as opposed to the former, a partially rusticated piece. The overall aesthetic of this immense mass of briar is charmingly folksy in presentation, the wood melting as if the half-life of some alchemist concoction had just been reached and is now in an elemental state of decay. It's also fairly subdued, displaying no showy flair in stain or shape design. The pipe's artistic merit resides in its bluntness, which is refreshing, as most of the pipes we get aim at rejuvenating classic shapes through the contemporary eye, jazzing up the package with fancy stems and ornamental mounts.
