You might be wondering what one of our Tenth Anniversary Lovats, made for us by Claudio Cavicchi, is doing on a 2013 update - i.e. about three years late. Well, so was I. Apparently, it's been in hiding, something easy for a pipe to do around here, given all the multitudes of briars and meerschaums readily at hand for it to disappear into. All that having been said, the jig is up now, so onto the site it goes, giving one of you out there the chance to acquire a fresh "CCC" example of this limited edition, silver-banded series, rendered in the shape Claudio considers the most challenging of the classics - and therefore one of his favorites as well.
