Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Rhodesian (CCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2472
Claudio Cavicchi knows his way around a Rhodesian shape, having made countless variations of different proportions and line work. I say this straight rendition is one of the finest I have seen from him to date, with a broad conical rim absolutely resplendent with dense whorls of birdseye. The lighter traditional stain highlights the grain well, adding birdseye on the underside and flames rising vertically all about the broad bowl. While we often see the shape in stubby lengths, this bold piece stretches to a length past six inches, providing visual and physical balance juxtaposed to the palm-filling bowl. The fine briar has earned this piece not just one but three of Claudio's Cs, indicating how pleased he is with how the pipe came out.-Joel Balyeat
