New Pipes: Brebbia: Gio Sabbiata Rhodesian  

Product Number: 002-009-2268

After playing detective and extensively researching the "Gio" in "Gio Sabbiata", I have to accept that the trail has run cold. Sabbiata, of course carries significance, meaning "sandblasted" when translated into English, but "Gio" on the other hand, simply means "Thu", which I'm guessing is not an abbreviation for Thursday. Pipe makers, after all, have a tendency to mark years, not days of the week when pipes are made. Gio also could be a misinterpretation of G10, a possible grain grading system...and one, it seems, every other pipe retailer failed to catch--but no, after triple checking the "Gio" name stays. A possible former Brebbia pipe maker, or perhaps a Brebbia interpretation of another pipe maker's design? I really need to stop before I turn into John Nash Jr.

What I can assure you of is the sleek, aerodynamic shaping of the design: the graceful arch of the shank, the sharp, forward cant of the bowl, uniquely lacking the traditional bead-lines usually found in a Rhodesian, and the smooth sandblasted finish, revealing and accentuating the innate beauty of its ring grain. Whatever else this Gio is, it sure knows how to make a pipe.
