Italian Estates: Ascorti Business Belge (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-42095

In his youth, Roberto Ascorti became well-acquainted with the craft of pipe making thanks to his father Giuseppe Ascorti. He initially helped his father while attending the Art Institute, eventually wanting to work full–time in pipe making at the age of 22. However, since his father's factory had no room, Roberto founded the Ascorti marque with the support of his family. Dynamic in profile, this Belge from Ascorti features a tall bowl at the fore, taking on a subtle forward cant as its walls rise from the curved heel toward the slanted rim. Out back, a sturdy oval shank transitions from the bowl and meets a slightly downturned, tapered stem, creating a Zulu-esque silhouette. Ascorti's Business finish dresses the stummel in a craggy rustication set beneath a dark, chocolate-hued stain.
