Jacono: Bishop Bent Brandy Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-616-1443
In 1981, Tonino Jacono and his father-in-law began developing an idea for a pipe-making workshop. Tonino's father-in-law would supply the briar from the mill where he worked; Tonino's brother-in-law would shape the pipes; and Tonino would finish the pipes. Two years later, Tonino and his family were crafting pipes centralized around a core philosophy: offer the highest-quality smoking instruments at the right price. Four decades later, Tonino now heads the workshop and has taken over carving the pipes himself, though he maintains the same adherence to that core value system. Here, Tonino showcases his impeccable shaping acumen and handsome finishing work. This bent Brandy boasts a plump bowl that stands at the fore of an upturned shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. The bowl tapers from its wide heel to its taut rim, and as it does, it produces a low-set waistline that conforms naturally to wrapping-fingers. The shank and stem's elegant curvature lends a touch of gesture to the shape's silhouette and promotes a comfortable smoking posture. A striking dual finish dresses the stummel and juxtaposes patches of craggy rustication against sections of smoothly polished briar.--Davin Hylton
