Martelo: Smooth Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-694-0032
Though much of his work does follow more traditional proportions, it's hard to deny Gustavo Cunha's penchant for these trimmer, leaner numbers. Weighing just 27 grams, this is a true featherweight of a Billiard shape, though not one without its fair share of classy style. The slightly elongated and lean shank and stem configuration evokes the look of those pieces so enjoyed by the Crooner Bing Crosby back in the day — a style which has inspired its own niche within the pipemaking and collecting community. That said, Cunha's still delivered a respectable tobacco chamber with fairly stout, insulating walls to match. To top it off, this piece is also dressed in one of Martelo's gorgeous contrast stains, highlighting the briar's flame grain in fiery warmth, and topped with a finely patterned cumberland bit to complete the palette. Gorgeous pipe all around.- Andrew Wike
