Jacono: Rook Pot with Boxwood (E) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-616-1454
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. Broad and upright, this straight Pot showcases a bowl that's more broad than it is tall and readily displays the workshop's neoclassical style. Said bowl sits proudly atop a firm heel and has been paired to a trim shank and saddle stem via a wide transition that leaves plenty of room to drape a thumb. Said shank is short, extending to meet an extension of pale boxwood which draws some of the focus away from the bowl and contrasts the jet-black acrylic of the stem. Dressed in the warm stain of the Rook series, this pipe showcases some handsome grain throughout, with flickering flame wrapping around the bowl and birdseye at the rim and underside.-John McElheny
