Another three years of have passed, which means it's come time for a new generation of Radice Xmas pipe. For those of you not already familiar with how the Radices go about this, Luigi and sons produce limited-edition Christmas pipes every year, in a year-specific shape, but choose a new theme only once every three. This year's edition marks the closing of this themes "generation", which was defined by the use of antler accents on classic shapes. For the final entry of Generation Antler they've chosen a fittingly simple, charming style for a holiday seasonal special; a plump-bowled Italian straight Apple. Along with the signature antler accent these briars likewise come with a briar-and-antler tamper.
