Italian Estates: Claudio Cavicchi Smooth Lovat (CCC) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-26184
A stout and muscular take on the Lovat, this robust classic is the perfect example of how the Italian school, and particularly Cavicchi as an Italian artisan, renders traditional forms with a bit of added muscularity and robustness. The shank in particular is quite hearty, belying its extra length in conjunction with an abbreviated saddle stem. While many Italian neoclassical designs tend to shift most of the visual weight to the bowl, this heavier treatment of the shank actually balances out the composition, evenly distributing that visual weight. And a good thing too, as the entire stummel is simply covered in finely stranded flame grain. It's offered here in unsmoked condition.- Andrew Wike
