Italian Estates: Moretti Collection Smooth Rhodesian (��������) (1) (2011)
Product Number: 004-006-32320
At a glance, the proportions of this Rhodesian from Moretti would appear to be that of a Nosewarmer, with stout, chubby shaping and an abbreviated mouthpiece. Of course, the Italian maker loves to upend expectations and also is fond of large pipes, so perhaps it should come as no surprise this is just a gigantic and equally stout rendition. It's six inches long and reaches a height of three, but what is really impressive is its weight; I'm talking about a full third of a pound of briar here, people. Of course, more briar means more grain, and this buxom beauty has plenty, with brilliant upswept flame grain all about the bowl and a dense myriad of birdseye dotting the expansive conical rim. If you want a pipe that impresses from across a room, look no further.- Joel Balyeat
