Caminetto: Partially Rusticated Paneled Zulu (Moustache Moustache) (AT) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-011-0826

The Caminetto workshop was founded by Luigi Radice and Guiseppe Ascorti in the late 1960s, the pair establishing the brand after a lengthy tenure with Castello. Caminetto pipes quickly became a success, their unique design language cementing them as one of Italy's most respected makers. They've become especially renowned for their craggy rustications, with many of their pipes showcasing highly textural carving across their stummels. This Zulu is a unique piece from the brand, being one of the very few examples of the shape we've ever seen from them and featuring a strikingly muscular, paneled build. Stamped "Moustache" twice, this pipe is representative of some of Caminetto's largest works, here coming in at a full nine inches long and boasting an impressively robust feel in hand. A wide transition gives way to a tapering stretch of shank that ebbs toward a similarly tapering stem of black acrylic, the comparatively slender aft side placing nearly all of the visual weight on the bowl. Said bowl is a veritable monolith of briar, rising to more than three inches tall and flaring gently toward a broad, plateau-crowned rim. The sides of the bowl are framed by a quartet of panels, lending it a square shaping which firms up the feeling in hand significantly, while a defined forward cant affords the profile a pronounced dynamism. The right side of the bowl features a curving, hollow-carved channel which further distinguishes the feel in hand, and this feel is bolstered even more by this pipe's dressing: A craggy rustication covers the shank and back of the bowl, while the rest of the briar displays a smooth, chestnut-hued finish.
