Caminetto: Rusticated Billiard (08) (AT) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0777
Affectionately known as "La Pipa del Baffo" or pipe with the mustache, Caminetto was founded in the 1960's when Luigi Radice and Guiseppe Ascorti left Castello's workshop to found their own. The marque gets its name from the Italian for chimney camino the diminutive of which is caminetto making these pipes little chimneys. Caminetto pioneered many aspects of Italian pipe making, from freer shaping to distinctive finishing techniques which have come to define the style associated with the country. This Billiard is a fine example of both, featuring a tall, exaggerated bowl with tapered walls atop a jutting heel, dwarfing the oval shank and acrylic stem. Dressed in a craggy rustication, the dark, earthy stummel offers plenty of texture for the fingers to explore, elegantly contrasted by a smooth rim.-Gabriel Bass
