Gabriele: Smooth Bent Tomato with Horn (Snail)
Product Number: 002-533-0022
Soft, superbly smooth both aesthetically and in hand, and beautifully grained, this Gabriele dal Fiume briar is, no doubt, an easy one to enjoy - even without smoking it. Just simply holding this little number is positively soothing. Gabriele is a bit of curious one within the context of Italian pipemakers, as he takes his design inspiration not from the neoclassical or Pesaro styles, but more from a combination of Danish design and nature. And on that note, I should surely point out that the ferrule of this briar is not acrylic or vulcanite, but in fact an exceptionally dark piece of natural horn.
