Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: L'Anatra Smooth Bulldog (Three Egg)  

Product Number: 004-006-8870

A curiously proportioned Bulldog, obviously from the more whimsical side of the Pesaro school, the slim shank seems to transition into the overlarge bowl much like the slender neck of a table fan. Yes, the visual weight does fall heavily on the bowl, but it never feels unbalanced, partially due to the subtle, downward-bending cant of the bowl (something I've never seen on a Bulldog design). And it feels splendid in hand, a tactile pleasure profoundly stifled by the limitations of two-dimensional representations (i.e., photos on a website). But something you can fully appreciate is the grain. Rated "Three Eggs", L'Antra's highest rating, the precision of placement is unmatched, as the dappled birdseye on the topmost side of bevel, meets the line exactly, before transforming into falling rays of straight flame grain.
