Luigi Viprati Pipe of the Year 2004 Rusticated Rhodesian with Silver (110/200)

Product Number: 004-006-8958

Only one other Viprati 'Pipe of the Year' (year unknown) has graced our archives, and in my description I can be quoted as saying "I haven't been at Smokingpipes long, but...Luigi Viprati is one of the most interesting, if not the most brave, pipemakers I've ever seen." Several months later I can honestly say that my opinion of him hasn't changed, and in some ways has been strengthened by a few more unique encounters. Well, this '2004 Pipe of the Year' is yet another reason why I now wait so patiently on a Viprati. The eccentric Pesaro shaping is so playfully executed, the acute taper billowing out at the bevel line, only to contract and then flair at its bare rim. The elegant distortion is made even more extreme through the contrast of the angularity of the acutely square shank. Nothing to do now but put it away to ship out, and wait for the next Viprati masterpiece to cross my path...
