Rusticated Freehand (Gigante)

Product Number: 002-023-1027

In the immortal words of John Cleese (though sans pink panties, or being roasted over a spit) ”And now, for something completely different…”. L’Anatra, simply by virtue of being Italian, makes occasional use of compression along the horizontal axis, and this pipe would be an example, albeit far from a typical one. To get an idea of the amount of compression in play here, the width of the bowl is 1.69” and the length of the bowl (proper) is 2.24”. Another difference, from most L’Anatra shapes which utilize this stylistic choice, is the election to trade a near perpendicular relationship between the bowl and shank for a strong cant to the fore, which in turn creates an implied sense of momentum. Candidly, pronounced compression and my hand usually don’t get along. Rather cuddling inside my paw, I feel like I have a tenuous hold on a motorcycle clutch. Because of fore-tilt of the bowl, and longer, flatter line of the shank, my thumb, index and middle finger fall in a manner that I find quite comfortable.
