G. Penzo: Sandblasted Bent Billiard (Shell) (A) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-782-0072
An Italian artisan, Giacomo Penzo currently resides in Ireland, working for Peterson as the Irish marque's Pipe Specialist, bringing his natural talent and wealth of experience to the workshop. Penzo has a background in industrial design, and that education seems to translate quite well to pipe making, especially when considering this handsome, deftly rendered bent Billiard. The firm, cylindrical bowl pairs well to the sinuous shank-and-stem combination that strikes a willowy S-curve out back, with the tapered stem of vulcanite arcing gently for a relaxed smoking posture. The stummel wears a stunning sandblasted finish, accentuating the growth rings that neatly stack up the bowl while also lending plenty of stimulating texture to delight the fingers. Chamfered at the rim to aid in the loading of tobacco and practically begging to be hang from the jaw, this piece possesses a grace and easy charm that that can't help but enthrall.--Davin Hylton
