Jacono: 40th Anniversary Knight Volcano (B09/50) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-616-1127
Tonino Jacono has been satisfying pipe smokers since 1981, and for his 40th anniversary, Tonino has released a serialized, limited-edition line consisting of two shapes: an Author and a Volcano. Only 50 renditions of each shape were made, and both are dressed in his signature Knight rustication, exemplified by this particular Volcano.
A great Sitter, thanks to its flattened underside, this pipe features a stouter proportions than are often seen, with a very subtle, gradual taper to the rim from a plump base. The form's standard demarcating ridgeline, too, is less pronounced; it's easily felt, though and is covered by the dark, earthy finish. Clearly embracing the Italian school of design with dramatic, muscular proportions, Tonino has carved the thick shank with equal robustness, tapering it ever so slightly toward the jet-black, acrylic stem. While the Knight finish cloaks the majority of the stummel, the rim and a thin ring of briar at the shank end are smoothly rendered and lightly stained, providing a textural and visual contrast. This Volcano was deftly fashioned by the talented Tonino and comes with a soft, commemorative, butterscotch-colored pouch and a special certificate of ownership serializing the pipe and celebrating Jacono's legacy.-Angela Robertson
