Claudio Cavicchi: Bologna 2020 Two Pipe Set with Claudio Albieri Leather Presentation Box (02/05)

Product Number: 002-400-2442

Claudio Cavicchi and Claudio Albieri have combined their skills for their third year of special, two-pipes sets housed in elegant, leather presentation boxes. Five of these sets have been made, each comprising a smooth and a sandblasted pipe in related shapes, and Cavicchi's hometown of Bologna is recognized, with each pipe stamped "Bologna 2020." This is number two of the five.

The presentation case offers the first impression of the set, and Albieri's skills are finely demonstrated in fine Italian leather. It's a presentation box that will be difficult not to use — a pipe cabinet may be nice, but the leather and workmanship here will make that cabinet inadequate.

The pipes are both in the Bulldog family, the smooth a tall Rhodesian and the sandblast a firm Bulldog. Both reveal double beadlines around the bowl. The Rhodesian displays excellent grain quality, which is unsurprising given Cavicchi's consistent ability to provide stunning examples of consistently fine grain. Its shank is round and double lines near the shank end complement the beadlines of the bowl's waist.

The Bulldog offers an excellent sandblast with growth rings circling the bowl parallel to the beadlines. Crisp ridgelines dominate the shank with crisply executed precision, and the broad, domed rim offers a wealth of blasted birdseye across its expanse. A very sturdy and traditional piece elevated by both Albieri's presentation in fine leather and Cavicchi's monumental carving skills. All together it's a set of straight pipes that will be prized, probably for multiple generations into the future.
