New Pipes: Gamboni: Sandblasted Lovat (Hole in One) (16)  

Product Number: 002-575-0018

The style of some artisans' pipes take take a little time to grow on you. Others just strike a certain appeal at first glance. Gian Gamboni's, for me at least, were very much a case of the latter. His contrast stains are wonderfully bold, even on sandblasts like this, and his shaping presents a curious combination of Paolo Becker and, I suspect, Russian (particularly Yashtylov) influences. While not as delicate of shank as those ultra-fine stemmed Billiard variants Paolo was making some years ago, this Gamboni presents a similar elegant play between the proportions of the bowl and everything that follows it, while still retaining a sound aesthetic balance - not to mention a simply lovely flow.
