Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Bent Billiard (CCCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2174
A large, smooth, bent Billiard from the inimitable Claudio Cavicchi, this saddle-stemmed pipe offers excellent proportions and traditional styling. The bowl is almost Brandy-esque, that impression bolstered by the wide heel and wonderful curvature. The light blonde stain illuminates the vertical grain around the bowl, rising to a flat rim. There's a low center of gravity to this pipe, and the agile angle of the shank leading to the soft curvature of the mouthpiece promises good balance even when perched in the teeth. The shank is muscular and the transition rises to nearly half the height of the bowl, providing a substantial presence in profile. Claudio continues to astound us week after week with his impressive compositions, and this boldly classical Billiard supports that impression.- Chuck Stanion
