Becker: Sandblasted Morta Pickaxe
Product Number: 002-007-0565
Paolo Becker is an eclectic one, as a pipemaker; not only has he branched off in a design direction quite unlike the established Italian/Pesaro styles, he's also been one of those pipemakers more willing to embrace materials beyond briar. Take morta, for example: while we're beginning to see its use more and more, scattered amongst the works of other artisans, Paolo's been shaping this stuff for years, and we've been more likely to see an update that included at least one than an update that included none.
