Butz-Choquin: Enzo Bent Egg (D) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-010-0704
By naming "Enzo" (Italian in origin - the short form for Lorenzo, Vincenzo or Fiorenzo) is French Butz-Choquin trying align this pipe somehow with the Italian school? Perhaps. After all, I've seen more than a few of these low swooping, bent Egg configurations emerge from the likes of Italian makers such as Ser Jacapo and Don Carlos. The design is simply too irresistible not to touch upon, with its smoothly sinuously form, the gesture dips and surfaces as effortlessly as a porpoise - accentuated in no small part by the aggressively forward rim of the bowl. Beautiful as it is, however, the pipe never sacrifices practicality or comfort, with the briar resting very naturally in hand, the bit presented in an easy position, and of course a deep bend for those who like a pipe they can clench.
