The Radices have fully embraced the reverse-Calabash concept, and judging by how fast they go, pipe smokers have in turn embraced Luigi and sons' distinctive, extra-stout take on the idea. We've seen quite a few bent Billiard "Aeros" previously, but here we find something different: a solid-sitting, straight, paneled Poker. Given how deep the chambers are on Radice Aeros, making one a sitter does seem quite practical. As for the paneling, well, that's just another way to show off a whole lot of great ring-grain.
