Italian Estates: Moretti Smooth Morta Billiard (2019) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-40940

I typically tend to associate the Moretti name with oversized, proportionally exaggerated renditions of the classics. With such impressively sized briars part and parcel to their aesthetic, it's easy to forget that the workshop does work with alternative mediums as well β€” such as this strikingly jaunty, Stack-like Billiard rendered in morta: a semi-petrified bog oak that's well-regarded for its flavor-neutral smoking properties. It's quite a beautiful bit of morta as well, with flame grain running up the cylindrical bowl and the rim crisscrossed with the unique pattern that has become so irresistible to pipe makers and smokers. The tapering shank-and-stem combination places further emphasis on this bowl, and the strikingly multicolored coloration of the acrylic stem does well to contrast the jet-black stain of the stummel.
