Italian Estates: Luciano Smooth Bent Apple (52) (B) (Gr 3) (2014)
Product Number: 004-006-23505
Particularly noteworthy of Luciano's Apples is the gradual taper from the bowl/shank transition all the way to the lip button, unless it has a saddle stem, of course. This piece features a confident contrast stain in a dark, walnut hue, and though at first glance it may appear to have uninteresting grain, that is not the case. Fine grain abounds along the sides of the shank, up the flanks and on the far side of the bowl. The chamber walls are thick and the pipe has a reassuring heft in hand, with remarkably smooth transition curves at the shank and bowl, leaving one's fingers tracing the shape over and over.- Chuck Stanion
