Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Claudio Cavicchi Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver Band (CC)  

Product Number: 004-006-8868

Grading, whether we are speaking about size, grain, (what have you), is a necessarily subjective process. After you look at a few hundred of a given makers pipes, you start to get the "gist" of what kind of size, what kind of grain gets rating x or rating y. With most pipe makers, if I get the unshakable notion that a rating was off of what *I* think of is the norm, the "off" usually falls fairly close to even when it comes to the over/under line. As I said, it's subjective. Having said that, who the heck wants to pay extra bucks for grain/size that isn't there? One of the many things that I will give mastro Claudio Cavicchi, when the man "errs" he always seems to default to giving you more pipe for the money. Take this perfectly executed, Italian school Dublin for an example. The vertical grain of the body covers all 360 degrees of the bowl, as well as down both sides of the shank. Enjoy a "CCC" (at least) at an estate "CC" price.
