Italian Estates: Luigi Viprati Smooth Bent Apple (Four Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-24829

Luigi Viprati pipes are well-known and revered for their gestural stances, exquisite grain, and unique shaping. This bent Apple certainly checks all those boxes and is an unabashedly Italian design in execution. The massive, palm-filling bowl garners much of the piece's visual attention and rightfully so as there's plenty to love about it. The broad, bulbous base gradually tapers up towards the high-set rim , showcasing a dazzling mix of flame grain and birdseye along its journey. The sweeping, slightly elongated transition provides ample room for the thumb to rest, which will undoubtedly come in handy as the deep chamber means you're in store for some lengthy smokes. And despite its pronounced size, this offering is surprisingly lightweight and stem's bend should allow it to hang from jaw with ease.
