Italian Estates: Becker Sandblasted Acorn (Two Clubs) (2010) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-8550

Paolo Becker always had much more of an individualist, artistic taste in terms of pipe design, compared to his father, the late pipemaker Fritz Becker, who leaned heavily towards traditional shaping. The past decade in particular has seen Paolo push his own approach further and further, resulting at times in designs that are difficult to pigeonhole into a specific classic shape definition - with this deeply-sandblasted hybrid of Stack and Acorn being a bold example. Often we think of the Stack as a pretty static design, and the Acorn as something rather dainty as rule, but this briar is neither. What it is, rather, is lively and gestural in flow and posture, and sturdy, rugged, and organic in form and texture.
