Brebbia: Collection Pura Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-009-4675
This is a very special piece from Brebbia, and not just because it is a part of their Collection line which, itself, features pipes made entirely by hand from their finest briar, but because it also belongs to the Pura series. This, according to our archives, is the first of its kind we have ever seen, and combines the unique, individualistic shaping of one of the Italian marque's finest craftsmen with some truly stellar grain, something this pipe has been shaped to display as best as possible. The bowl here pairs a blunt, prominent heel to sweeping, slightly bulbous walls, with the fore end getting a touch more arc to the chamfered rim than the aft. A sharp upturn possesses the trim shank which terminates in a black acrylic army mount at its end, the face of which is angled to face rearward and undulates as it encircles the curved, tapered stem. Said stem strikes a handsome posture that is sure to make this a dream to smoke, allowing for easy draws from the hand or hanging from the jaw alike. A vivid mahogany stain dresses the briar here, allowing the dense striations of flame and straight grain beneath it to pop quite well, contrasting the black acrylic it has been paired to beautifully.-John McElheny
