Paolo Becker Smooth Volcano with Horn (Royal Flush) (Elite C) (2004) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-9940

I have had the good fortune of owning a few Paolo Becker Royal Flush Elite Pipes, a whopping 1 (one) of which was a B. The Royal Flush Elite C is the highest grade that Becker employs. To the best of my knowledge there have only been six Royal Flush Elite C Grades ever produced, one (ok, now two) of which I have personally seen and one of them resides in the Pipes and Tobacco Museum in Raleigh, NC.

Paolo Becker’s shaping has long been held as some of the most iconoclastic in the industry. His dramatic forays into bold, game changing proportionality were well underway just as the rest of the carving world seemed to come to grips with the potential. Then you had Becker’s approach to his Royal Flush series; a separate world where sleek visuals and compositional balance once again held sway. In terms of quality of cut and grain, this is one of the most extraordinary pipes that I've ever seen. The sleek, low-slung shape is positively breathtaking. The overall shape conception appears to be a blend of Italian and German influences (not terribly surprising, given that Paolo is of Austrian-Italian heritage, and is angular and architectural upon first glance - stunningly so, in fact, and something you are not likely to run into any time soon.

--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
