Jacono: 40th Anniversary Knight Volcano (B13/50) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-616-1126
To commemorate his 40th anniversary as a pipe maker, Tonino Jacono has crafted a limited-edition line of pipes totaling only 100 pieces — 50 Authors and 50 Volcanoes. Each shape is serialized out of 50, wears the fetching Knight rustication, and comes included with a special certificate of ownership.
This Volcano shape features a tall, stout bowl that tapers gracefully from the broad, flattened heel to the taut rim. The subtly cinched waistline of the bowl exaggerates the aforementioned taper, drawing attention to the disparity in proportions between the rim and ridgeline-wrapped heel. While the bowl certainly possesses most of the visual weight, in Italian neoclassical fashion, the shank remains rather robust in its own right, keeping the overall design muscular. The stummel wears Jacono's earthy Knight rustication to provide plenty of delightful texture for the fingers to explore while holding the pipe, with the rim, nomenclature panel, and a trim band at the shank end left smooth and lightly stained for a touch of contrast. Courtesy of the flattened heel, this piece sits sturdily without the aid of a stand, which makes it ideal for those who are looking for a distinctive desk pipe.--Davin Hylton
