Jacono: Rook Bent Billiard with Boxwood (E) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-616-1553

Boasting the dramatized proportions of Italian neoclassic pipe making, this bent Billiard from Tonino Jacono features a muscular bowl with a low-setr mass and gradually tapering sides similar to those seen on a Brandy shape. It's paired to a shank of more slender dimensions that lifts to meet a broad accent of pale boxwood before giving way to a sleek, smartly curved saddle stem of black acrylic. Dressed in the Rook finish, this pipe wears a warm, smooth, auburn-mahogany-hued stain that unveils a dense pattern of flame grain wrapping around the walls of the bowl, while birdseye peppers the rim and underside

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.
