Let's address the proverbial "600 lb Gorilla" right off the bat. This pipe is quite large; Massimo Palazzi and Andrea Pascucci don't frivolously grade a pipe as "Gigante". An unabashedly massive monument of briar, this L'Anatra Gigante proves a handful and then some, with a deep and generous chamber surrounded by walls of ample thickness. Behemoth smokers such as this aren't for everyone, but if they are for you, you could hardly find a finer example than this finely shaped artisanal Billiard.
