Italian Estates: Carlo Volpe Sandblasted Paneled Bent Billiard Sitter (10) (2016)
Product Number: 004-006-24427
Flowing curves, precise panels, a full bend, tall bowl, and abrupt saddle bit are all obvious, but what the photos don't easily reveal is the grain. In the dark reddish brown of this pipe undulates cross-grain oriented grain, the far- and near-panels of the bowl lined with the vertical lines of growth rings. The sides are peppered with dimples of birdseye, and the eight panels of the bowl convert to four panels for the shank. Practical and balanced, it's large enough to smoke all day and comfortable enough to want to.- Chuck Stanion
