Caminetto: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash Calabash with Boxwood (06) (AR) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0769
In the late 1960s, two Castello pipe makers, Guiseppe Ascorti and Luigi Radice, left to found their own workshop, Caminetto. Their skilled craftsmanship grew Caminetto into one of the most popular marques of the 1970s and beyond. The traditional Calabash is fashioned from a gourd and fitted to a meerschaum or briar cap, providing a wide expanse within the pipe that cools the smoke. Modern reverse Calabashes employ the same engineering, but place the cooling reservoir within a thick, hollow shank. This Calabash by Caminetto incorporates both styles, featuring the traditional removeable chamber cap and modern reverse Calabash engineering in the shank. Additionally, the stummel is dressed in a mahogany sandblast, while a blonde accent at the shank end and smooth finished chamber cap offer both visual and textural contrast.--Zach Podl
