Italian Estates: Radice Clear Bulldog (2011) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-38345
A more proportionally balanced piece from Radice, compared to its other bowl-centric, Italian neoclassic examples, this Bulldog likens itself to traditional English interpretations of the archetype, though with firmer line work through the heel and more dramatic tapers to the bowl. Said bowl features the dual beadlines iconic to the shape, and their depth ensures they're noticed readily as they mark the taper to the rim. It's a handsome piece for those drawn to a more reserved Italian pipe, and the application of their Clear finish is gorgeous here, revealing a lovely cross grain pattern with swathes of birdseye swirling on either flank of the bowl.-Truett Smith
