Italian Estates: Mario Grandi Partially Sandblasted Apple with Bamboo

Product Number: 004-006-8852

The overall shaping of this Mario Grandi strikes me as rather closer to the Japanese style than the Italian, though it's Italian-ness is made much clearer in the arrangement of the bamboo extension: it's fixed to the stem, not the shank, a configuration Italian artisans just prefer. To make things even more eclectic, the briar's been sandblasted in the kind of deep, extra-craggy manner more typically associated with old English pipes.
