Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Long Shank Bent Apple (CCCCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2490
This long, bent Apple from Claudio Cavicchi has earned the distinction of five "C" stamps, the highest amount of Cs he gives any of his pipes. I can readily see why, as the Italian artisan has done an exemplary job of bringing out the briar's beauty, with breathtaking flame grain rising in dense concert all around the flanks of the bowl and the sides of the elongated shank, as well as resplendent birdseye on the entire underside. Dressed in a light honey stain and smooth finish, the stummel is worthy of our attention, and the thin black ring accent and abbreviated saddle stem discretely guide our gaze back where it belongs. While the Italian neoclassic aesthetic often features stubby pipes with oversized bowls, this rendition takes the opposite approach, with a long, round shank and svelte bowl. It is a refined piece, ready to take its rightful place a the center of any collection.-Joel Balyeat
