New Pipes: Radice: Clear Bulldog (G)  

Product Number: 002-030-1981

Put simply, this is a masterful stroke by Radice, but some of the praise should go to Castello. Luigi Radice, of course, made pipes for many years at Castello, before leaving in 68' to co-found Caminetto, followed by going independent in 1980.

The deep, elongated bowl, for instance is characteristically Castello, and so is the powerfully dynamic, jutting shank and stem. What is a rather unique move here is the two-toned stain, comprised of a darker raw umber above the bevel and a lighter, honey-blonde hue below. Besides being a very interesting play of colors and tones, the former much cooler than the latter, we get to experience the variance of grain through two different lenses, the latter subtle and warmer, the former bolder.
