The hand rusticated First Series from Brebbia is among the best values in pipes today. The silver work is simply stunning, and almost impossible to find on other pipes at this price point. Of the shapes available in this finish, this gorgeous calabash is by far the most popular. Special drilling allows for a draft hole which, though thoroughly curved, permits a pipe cleaner to pass from the stem, through the shank, and into the bowl with ease. Huzzah!
