Claudio's aptitude for shaping really shines through in this bent Egg's delicate curve and graceful transition. Featuring a slightly canted bowl with bold lines that extend the curve into a thick triangular shank, this briar possesses a remarkable dynamic aesthetic that pairs well with his choice of saddle stem. It's presented here in a lightly stained, sandblasted finish that really brings the intricacies of the grain to the forefront and provides a natural feel in hand. Complete with Cavicchi's masterful drilling, this briar promises a quality smoke. Could we really expect anything less from the winner of countless slow smoking world championships?
