Caminetto: Smooth Bent Billiard Sitter (05) (AR) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0716
We've seen a fair few Cherrywood renditions from Caminetto over the years, as both new and estate pipes, though this particular profile is something we've very seldom if ever seen from the Italian workshop. A standard cylindrical bowl is canted froward on a slanted heel, with a slanted rim providing a degree of forward-urging dynamism that lifts upward as it travels, all paired to a slightly angled shank. Said shank transitions quite low on this pipe, touching the flattened heel, and travels only a short bit before meeting a demurely curved saddle stem that gives this piece a kind of gentle momentum throughout its construction. A vivid ruby stain dresses the stummel, revealing some windswept flame grain around the bowl, with birdseye on the heel and rim, the former's flatness allowing it to sit steadily and show off its handsome looks.-John McElheny
