Italian Estates: Ascorti NUS Smooth Bent Egg with Silver (SKS) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-39613

Ascorti is one of the most storied names in Italian pipe making. In 1959, Giuseppe Ascorti began working for Castello and then left to found his own workshop in 1969. Alongside Luigi Radice, Giuseppe founded Caminetto, where his son Roberto was first introduced to pipes. In 1980, Roberto was ready to get into pipe making as a profession, but the Caminetto workshop was full, so Roberto founded his own workshop and named it Ascorti. Soon after, Caminetto closed and Giuseppe came to work with Roberto at Ascorti, propelling the name to prominence. Ascorti pipes are best known for their bold proportions, handmade acrylic stems, and excellent smoking qualities. This bent Egg is a prime example of Ascorti's Italian sytle, presenting a robust, bowl-centric design that feels equally as comfortable clenched or in hand. Additionally, it is dressed in a chestnut smooth finish, highlighting fine vertical grain around the bowl, and it is complemented by a trim silver band on the shank end.
