Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo 'La Fuma' Smooth Bent Egg (Maxima)

Product Number: 004-006-13789

It's inevitable that there are going to be briars that make it quite far into the pipe-making process before they reveal their flaws. For some marques, the response is to simply apply fills and go on as usual. For others, they'll market the pipes under a separate "seconds" brand. For Ser Jacopo, pretending the pipe didn't come out of their workshop is apparently considered a bit silly. After all, it's not like a Ser Jacopo design is hard to miss. So instead there's "La Fuma," a line of Ser Jacopos that bear the same Pesaro shaping, the same great engineering, but which are sold at a much lower price than it would otherwise have been, simply on account of the presence of a fill here or there. (A very small one on the underside of the shank, in this case.) Typically these are only sold in Europe, but every once and while one does make its way to us.
