Italian Estates: Davide Iafisco Smooth Dublin (2017) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-24080
Relying less on neoclassical shaping cues and proportions, this straight Dublin from Davide Iafisco is quite grounded in the classic English school of pipemaking. The softly-streamlined shaping, slightly jaunty heel, well-defined transition, and neatly-rounded shank all evoke the look of older straight Dublins I've encountered from old-school English marques. It's also a lightweight piece that should be a breeze to clench and feels incredibly natural in hand, making this a comfortably versatile piece. The warm chestnut stain accentuates plentiful licks of flame around the poised bowl as well as birdseye around the slightly inflated rim, making for a tastefully understated composition. It's a piece that's undeniably easy to enjoy: both visually and in hand.- Jeffery Sitts
