Claudio really has an eye for quality briar, and boy, does it show. Highlighted by a smooth sienna-brown finish, tight flame grain erupts from the stummel, flowing into intricate birdseye along the rim. Remove the stem, and you'll find Claudio's famed dead-on drilling - demonstrating his ability not only to choose quality materials, but to masterfully work them as well. Featuring a stout bowl with extra-thick shank and chamber walls, this is one solid Dublin from Cavicchi.
