Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Claudio Cavicchi Smooth Bent Bulldog (CCCC)  

Product Number: 004-006-8962

Representing the upper tiers of what Cavicchi has to offer in grain--clocking in at "CCCC", with delicate, needle-thin strands encompassing below the bevel--this Bulldog also represents some of the most innovative use of it. Above the bevel the rich, nutty stain gives way to a singe of rustic burnt sienna--a powerful and original move by the artisan. And the shape plays to it so well, starting at the very narrow beginnings of the stem, gradually tapering into its large, muscular bowl and fully blooming above the bevel. It's almost like the entire piece was building up to the bead-lines as if Cavicchi was already finished before he began carving, which if your familiar with his work is not surprising.
