Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Bent Billiard (CCC)
Product Number: 002-400-2655
I'm ceaselessly impressed by the work of Claudio Cavicchi, as every time I look at his work I can't help but see the exacting standards he holds himself to, and the perfectionism with which he approaches each of his pipes. This bent Billiard, too, showcases his uncanny ability to vary shapes, as it's not too often we see a bent Billiard with this long a shank and this demure of a curvature. The transition is wide, angling the shank upward just a touch so that it ebbs into the soft arc of saddle stem with a refined kind of poise. The bowl itself is hearty and features a low-set, slightly bulging waistline that allows the fingers to index quite easily, as well as a very gentle taper to its undulating rim, something pushed into prominence by way of its lifted heel. A "CCC" graded piece, this pipe is dressed in Cavicchi's signature honey-blonde stain, revealing a cloak of windswept flame grain covering the bowl and running up the flanks of the shank, with birdseye speckling the rim and heel.-John McElheny
