Rusticated Bent Egg

Product Number: 002-124-0077

Bruto Sordini was one of the founders of the Pesaro school, yet while this sort of down-shifted Egg (with an underside that dips well below the bottom line of the shank) can be found now and then from Pesaro artisans, the first thing it always reminds me of is older Caminettos and Ascortis - especially when combined with such a deep rustication. There is one catch though; I don't believe I've ever handled such a pipe from either of those marques that wasn't deeply bent. This straighter arrangement, combined with a gentle transition-wards taper of the shank, more strongly emphasizes the "Egg-ness" of the bowl. And though sporting only the slightest bit of bend, I doubt anyone would have much trouble clenching this Don Carlos, as it feels hardly any heavier than a Stanwell Featherweight.
