Italian Estates: Ercole Bogni Olivewood Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver (9mm)
Product Number: 004-006-9581
Because Ercole works for those companies in the Gavirate region, the amount of time he dedicates to making his own pipes is limited. As a result, he is not a artisan we usually see around these parts, which is a shame because he is an exceptional maker that deserves more than a nod. Ercole actually comes from a great pedigree, who started out working for some of the most famous Italian pipe makers in northern Italy. In 1963 he started making his own pipes, and due to the quality of his work, especially the semi-rusticated and smooth naturals (and the fact that he uses only the best available briar), his skills as a carver put him in high demand.
