Claudio Cavicchi: Black Sandblasted Tomato
Product Number: 002-400-2289
Claudio Cavicchi presents us here with a broad-bowled, extra-plump, and gestural take on the Tomato. It's a shape not normally associated with Italian pipe making, though Claudio has crafted his fair share of them over the years, each one varying in their design but always full of charm. The delightfully chubby bowl conforms to the hand effortlessly and is followed by a relatively abbreviated shank and an elongated saddle stem out back. Such shaping adds sleekness to the profile, with the stem's barely perceptible downturn balancing out the bowl's slight forward cant. It's seen here dressed in an incredibly classy, glossy black sandblast, its reddish undertones harmonizing beautifully with the smooth briar along the rim and shank end.- Jeffery Sitts
