Caminetto pipes were initially created just after 1968 when Guiseppe Ascorti left Castello and partnered with Luigi Radice to form the new brand in Cucciago, Italy. A pipe show in Milan was the first to feature the duo’s creations; however they soon expanded distribution into the United States. The name Caminetto is a playful take on ‘chimney’, something they came up with after they gazed into a fireplace and made the association. This was, perhaps, a perfect name for a pipe company, as they were indeed little chimneys. Since both Ascorti and Radice were sporting large, impressive mustaches, the Caminetto stem logo seemed obvious. The company thrived until 1979 when Radice left, and Ascorti exited soon afterward, taking with him all of the company’s employees in order to open his own factory. Roberto Ascorti (Guiseppe’s elder son) brought the brand back to life in 1987.
Classic Italian shaping and finishing make up all Caminetto pipes. Acrylic bits in various colors, rustication, sandblasting, smooth, and carved finishes can be found on the designs. Nearly all of the Caminetto pipes we carry sport nine-millimeter filters.
