Luciano: Sandblasted Apple (252) (S**) (Gr 2)
Product Number: 002-447-0935
While slender bamboo-stemmed designs were used as a dramatic kick-off of Luca di Piazza's refresh of the Luciano brand, he's clearly not neglecting those who still favor the meatier pipes common to the "old" Luciano style. Rather, he's taken the older shapes, like the "252" for example, and redesigned them with more modern lines. Here we find the stout straight Apple, it's bowl given a more Danish approach to roundness, a more forward and eager stance, and a streamlined redesign of the shank and stem, including a rather striking notch-back/half-saddle style.
