Jacono: Knight Bent Dublin Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-616-1376
In 1981, Tonino Jacono's father-in-law extended an offer to start a new pipe making workshop, his father-in-law providing high-quality briar from his job at a briar-cutting mill, his brother shaping the pipes, and Tonino himself doing the finishing. The idea was developed further, and, two years later, the first Jacono pipes were made in 1983 from out of the family's small workshop in Jesi, Italy. Tonino's start at this new venture was guided by a simple principle: offer pipes of the highest possible quality at the best possible price. Tonino now heads the company and has taken on carving responsibilities himself, staying true to his original goal, though benefiting from more than three decades of pipe making experience and a reputation for excellence. This bent Dublin is a uniquely stylized take on the classic shape, pairing a full-bodied bowl to a significantly more lithe stretch of shank and stem. Said shank and stem take on a subtle taper through to the stem base, the shank lifting to meet a demurely curved saddle of swirling grey and white acrylic and offering a comfortable smoking posture. A slightly lifted heel supports a broadly flaring bowl that grows to a tall, domed rim, its midsection pinched and evocative of the Hourglass shape, providing plenty of room to showcase the stummel's Knight rustication.-John McElheny
