Il Duca: Barone Sandblasted Nautilus (B3)
Product Number: 002-427-0251
The Nautilus shape is perhaps one of the most difficult to execute numbers out there. Bo Nordh pioneered the shape, but we've seen numerous attempts from other top pipe makers over the years - especially from the Danish school, usually featuring highly stylized forms. Max Rimensi, however, has his own approach to the number choosing to swirl the shank into a golden ratio-inspired pattern rather than leave it open, as is common among the Danes. While Max has sent us a few of these shapes in the past, it seems that he's constantly refining the shape - now perfected with a taller bowl and bolder curves for a more dynamic aesthetic. It's presented here in a warm sandblasted finish and topped with a rather Danish-looking stem feature.
