Emiliano: Smooth Blowfish with Mammoth Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-946-0001

Hailing from Brazil, Emanuel de Queiroz Emiliano picked up pipe smoking while studying in seminary, which led him to the world of artisan pipes. After discovering pipes made by fellow Brazilians Gustavo Cunha and Flávia Rodriguez, Emiliano was inspired to craft his first pipe, which he made with nothing but a drill and a sander. After finding immediate success selling his pipes, Emiliano sought out other artisans to help him temper his skills, and he learned from such pipe makers as Luis Lavos, Angelo Fassi, and Angelo del Prete of Il Cerchio. Like many of his contemporaries, Emiliano crafts a full breadth of shapes, his creations ranging from striking Freehands to familiar, traditional pieces, all of which showcase elements of his unique aesthetic perspective.

This Blowfish by Emiliano abounds with the crisp, structural ridges for which the shape is known. Most notably, the flanks are framed by two independent ridges: the left flank is marked by a lengthy ridge that extends from the shank end, wraps around the bowl, and flows back to the shank end, and it features a dramatic, fin-like flourish on the bowl's aft; the right flank is framed by a tidy ridge that forms a sharp teardrop shape, which frames a tightly packed core of birdseye. Out back, the elongated, bent shank is adorned with six crisp facets, each of which showcases an unbroken pattern of either birdseye or cross grain, a testament to Emiliano's talent for orienting grain. The shank concludes at a cream-toned accent band fashioned from mammoth, which handsomely separates the vibrant auburn stain on the stummel from the jet-black hue of the vulcanite saddle stem.
