Caminetto: Rusticated Freehand with Boxwood (08) (AT) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0781
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 Freehand is a fine example of both, placing a sleek, dramatically tapered bowl atop an angled heel, creating a dynamic sense of motion. Out back, a near-vertical round shank meets a boxwood mount joined to a deeply bent acrylic stem, offering an effortless clench. Dressed in a rugged walnut rustication, the stummel offers plenty of texture for the fingers to explore.-Gabriel Bass
