Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo Delecta Gem Series Fiammata Rhodesian with Silver (Granato) (C) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-38579

Founded in 1982 by Giancarlo Guidi, Ser Jacopo has built a reputation on crafting high-quality briars that are renowned for their robust proportions and playful shaping cues. The Italian atelier's style has since defined the Pesaro style of pipe making, each of their pipes imbued with a sense of character and reflecting the whimsical creativity that went into crafting them. Though Guidi passed away in 2012, his legacy lives on not only in the pipes he crafted, or the company he founded, but in the language of design that he helped to pioneer. Ser Jacopo's Gem Series is a unique one, using gemstones to identify its grading, and the line comprises only the best pipes that Ser Jacopo has to offer: with each subsequent gem grading denoting even higher quality. The line, in ascending order comprises Smeraldo ("Emerald"), Granato ("Garnet"), Zaffiro ("Sapphire"), and Rubino ("Ruby"), to Brillante ("Diamond") with this Rhodesian being graded Granato, identified by its tiny gemstone inlaid in the stem. In addition, this pipe belongs to the Delecta series, a line which features stylized mounts at the shank end and stem base, highlighting the junction with a variety of materials. A wide transition here gives way to softly lifted, tapering shank whose thick build diminishes into a silver Delecta mount, one married to a sleek saddle stem of black acrylic accented with silver at the base. The bowl here cants forward dynamically and grows flaring walls out of a round heel, expanding into a pair of beadlines at its low-set waist which additionally mark a sleek taper to the flat rim. The feel in hand is comfortable, with plenty of curvature to appreciate, and its presence is imposing: maintaining a hearty weight. Dressed in a light, nearly natural stain and slightly glossy finish, the stummel showcases some stellar grain, with flame grain wrapping around the bowl and birdseye well-represented on the underside.
