Jacono: Rook Bent Ball Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-616-1468

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 Ball boasts a nearly spherical bowl that's situated at the fore of an upturned shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. The shank extends through the transition and supports the bowl's heel, while the bowl itself takes on a dynamic forward cant. A warm smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights attractive grain across the briar's surface.
