Jacono: Rook Paneled Dublin Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-616-1552

Tonino Jacono's shaping style ranges from the unabashedly playful Pesaro school to the more classic side of the Italian Neoclassical aesthetic. This paneled Dublin sits firmly on the latter side of this spectrum, with a firm, muscular bowl possessed of a gentle flare to its rim, all resting upon a sturdy heel. Said bowl is also framed by a quartet of firm panels that offer some impressive firmness while smoking and draw the eye naturally toward the plateau-crowned rim. The shank is lengthy and stretches to meet a trim acrylic saddle stem of dark cumberland tones, matching the palette of the smoky sandblast that dresses the stummel. Said sandblast unveils a dense array of rippling ring grain cascading down the bowl, its texture complemented by the broad swath of plateau across the rim.

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.
