Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Rhodesian with Silver (CCCC) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-400-2777

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, with the honeyed hue of the briar contrasted by a handsome silver band at the shank end. While we often see the shape in stubby lengths, this bold piece stretches to a length of almost six inches, providing visual and physical balance juxtaposed to the palm-filling bowl. The fine briar has earned this piece four of Claudio's Cs, indicating how pleased he is with how the pipe came out.
