Italian Estates: Becker Sandblasted Tomato (Two Clubs) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-42179

Third-generation Italian artisan Federico Becker continues to build upon the pipe-making tradition established by his father, Paolo, and grandfather, Fritz, crafting distinctive, lively shapes from high-quality briar. While the Italian carver's work often showcases a penchant for dramatic, angular lines, this Tomato is a more streamlined, soft-featured shape, with the squat, rounded bowl elegantly paired to an arrow-straight shank-and-stem combination. This piece possesses the sharply pronounced, jutting heel that often marks the Italian artisan's work, adding a touch of angularity that offsets some of the bowl's rotund features. The shank extends from the tight-knit transition before giving way to a tapered stem of jet-black vulcanite, both of which offer crisp, sleek lines that balance the bowl in profile. A crisp, low-profile tanblast dresses the stummel and draws out neat, rippling growth rings that provide a wealth of visual and tactile intrigue.
