Italian Estates: Radice Silk Cut Pure Rhodesian (E) (2016)
Product Number: 004-006-24256
We talk often about the aesthetic benefits of virgin briar, the unstained material darkening with a patina with prolonged use. Rarely, though, are we able to showcase this benefit on site — new pipes having, obviously, never been smoked, and estate pipes coming from a variety of origins. However, we sold this same Radice Rhodesian several years back as a new pipe, when its Silk Cut Pure finish was new and unsmoked. As you can tell by comparison, it's developing a stunning patina, evenly coating the stummel in a warm, sandy hue, making for a completely new aesthetic.-Truett Smith
