The Perla Nera
(Black Pearl) series was a dream of Maestro Carlo Scotti's long before it became realized. Like any great dress pipe, there could be no lacquer employed, briars are meant to breathe and that meant stain - end of discussion. Many experiments were tried, but none of the results were up to Scotti's standards, until they hit the one before you. The Perla Nera provides a gentleman with the opportunity to select a dress pipe for the evening that is totally handcrafted, and therefore as individual as he is, something that sets the Perla well apart from the majority of its dress competition.
