Luciano: Smooth Scoop (F39) (B)
Product Number: 002-447-0727
Luciano has not produced many "Scoops" in their history; only two show up in our archives, and I hadn't even known of the shape's existence till this very moment (being an apprentice of sorts). But from what I can gather, the Scoop is a variation on the classic Dublin, and when I say variation, what I mean is the bowl has simply been lopped off--and also maybe with a slightly smoother transition from shank to bowl (although with all of the artistic liberty artisans are taking these days, it can be difficult to accurately categorize pipe shapes anymore). At any rate, although it does not have a corresponding classical shape, and despite being somewhat an unofficial one as well, this Scoop displays something of the Pesaro school's style--as in this case, the gesture of the pipe is a big part of its design.
