Luigi Viprati Smooth Bent Billiard (5 Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-9820

It's rather difficult for me to recall the last smooth pipe from Luigi Viprati that didn't have really impressive grain - this piece at '5 Clovers' (the best of their standard grain), coming in right before the Fiammata which resides at the very top. And considering Viprati use only the highest quality briar, that's really saying something. The shape also just seems so wonderfully appropriate for showing off all that straight grain: a large, supply rounded bent Billiard, which is uniquely accented by a Michal Novak-esque ridge. Thus, much of the visual weight is pushed towards the front where the bowl takes center stage, and the slender shank and stem playing to its form.
