Italian Estates: Posella Smooth Rhodesian (F1) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41360

A thick and hearty take on the classic shape, this Rhodesian from Posella showcases a sturdy build that's rich with musculature throughout. The transition is wide, with plenty of room to drape a digit, and it gives way to a sleekly tapering shank and stem combination possessed of a firm, square shaping that sharpens the aft side significantly. This sharp styling out back lends the pipe a defined aerodynamic look and focuses much of the visual weight on the bowl, all while maintaining a nicely balanced demeanor. The underside of the pipe is entirely flat, making this piece a reliable and stable sitter, and this flatness informs the heel's own flat, firm presence. Given its rigidity, the heel ably supports the thickly flaring walls of the bowl as they reach toward a high waist marked with a firm ridgeline, one that additionally denotes a swift taper to the rim. Dressed in a warm, rich, chestnut-hued smooth finish, the briar here displays a wealth of handsome grain, with dense flame surrounding the bowl and ample birdseye on the rim and underside.
