Italian Estates: Ascorti New Dear Dublin with Silver (KS) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-40596

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 Dublin from Radice features a pert, flared bowl that sweeps into a well-bent shank-and-stem arrangement, with the acrylic tapered stem providing a comfortable clench. Additionally, the stummel is dressed in Radice's New Dear finish, a rustication unique to Italian pipe making that carves the briar into a pattern that resembles melted wax, and it is accented by a trim silver band on the shank end.
