Jacono: Stalemate Rusticated Apple (7) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-616-1522

This Apple from Jacono is a plump, bowl-forward piece that features rounded walls and a flat rim at the fore of an extended, square-shaped shank and black acrylic saddle stem. Quite comfortable in hand, the bowl also houses a generous chamber for long smoking sessions. Part of Jacono's Stalemate series, this pipe has been carved not from briar, but from hornbeam, an especially dense hardwood most often used in high-wear settings, like cobbling, flooring, or for piano parts. Also called ironwood, it has a reputation for being difficult to work with, perhaps part of the inspiration for the name of the series. Dressed in a craggy rustication that offers rich texture in the hand and a dark, inky stain, the palette of this pipe is serious and reserved.

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.
