L'Anatra: Sandblasted Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-023-0937
The Apple is by nature a simple shape, unlike, say, the Billiard, canting the bowl or fiddling with its taper isn't going to change things all that much. Still the way an artisan presents it can do a lot in terms of defining a pipe's character, and in this case L'Anatra's Massimo Palazzi and Andrea Pascucci have done so via a long, languidly curving stem, a trim shank, and a deep, smooth transition. The result is an easy, rounded feel in hand, a relaxed, yet still firmly-proportioned profile, and a light balance for puffing away with the bit merely clenched between your teeth.
