Apparently Luca diPiazza isn't dawdling when it comes to producing variants on the new shapes he's even just now introducing as part of Luciano's revamping. This "36QB" is, in fact a paneled version of the "36", and as simple a change as it may be, the paneling does really change the look of the pipe. Chiseled and tapered, the bowl presents a much firmer aesthetic than the standard "36", though it does still retain the same broad and softly rounded underside - a nice place for showing off a bit of birdseye, as this example does.
Included with this pipe is an organic cotton sleeve, technical paper about the pipe, and a large designer pipe pouch.
