Aside from new (and very different) designs and series, Luca diPiazza's going-forward revamping of Luciano's offerings is to include a switch over to the use of aged plateau briar only. And I have to say, this slender-stemmed Pot in particular has definitely benefited from it. 360-degrees of flame grain and a wildly craggy crown of plateau do go quite a ways towards making a great first impression.
Included with this pipe is an organic cotton sleeve, technical paper about the pipe, and a large designer pipe pouch.
