G. Penzo: Sandblasted Bog Oak Lovat (Shell) (A) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-782-0079
An Italian carver now residing in Ireland where he works for Peterson as the marque's Pipe Specialist, Giacomo Penzo also brings a background in industrial design to his skillful pipe making. This compact Lovat is primed for portability and sits sturdily upright, thanks to a flattened underside. A muscular piece, its rounded bowl, high-set transition and equally stout shank present a charming, stocky disposition. The stummel is fashioned from natural bog oak, a less petrified form of morta, with its warm coloring and unique grain patterns showcased by a low-profile sandblast. The natural tones of the bog oak are a bit darker in some areas of the pipe than others, heightening its organic nature, and it's topped by a short saddle stem of similar tones for a unified aesthetic.-Angela Robertson
