Italian Estates: Jacono Pawn Bent Dublin (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-38762
In 1981, Tonino Jacono's father-in-law extended an offer to start a new pipe making workshop, his father-in-law providing high-quality briar from his job at a briar-cutting mill, his brother shaping the pipes, and Tonino himself doing the finishing. The idea was developed further, and, two years later, the first Jacono pipes were made in 1983 from out of the family's small workshop in Jesi, Italy. Tonino's start at this new venture was guided by a simple principle: offer pipes of the highest possible quality at the best possible price. Tonino now heads the company and has taken on carving responsibilities himself, staying true to his original goal, though benefiting from more than three decades of pipe making experience and a reputation for excellence. This bent Dublin is quite nice, with a subtle sinuousness about its construction that's owed to a demurely arced saddle stem and an upturned shank, the combination offering a lovely S-curve in profile and flowing easily into the bowl at the tightly-knit transition. Said transition is wide enough to drape a thumb and builds the aft wall of the bowl without flare, keeping the aft end straight and lending more presence to the fore. The underside of this pipe presents with a fluid undercurve, the sweeping heel it meets rising into the fore wall with a forward urge that not only adds dynamism to the pipe, but a subtle momentum. Dressed in the crisp sandblast and dark stain of the Pawn series, there's plenty of handsome grain to appreciate here, with the palette kept understated and subtle throughout.-John McElheny
