Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Blowfish with Olivewood (CCCCC) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-400-2863

This Blowfish is a rarely seen shape from Claudio Cavicchi, making this pipe a welcome inclusion, especially so, given the five "C" stamps, indicating superior grain and uniformity, second only to the rare "Perla" and nigh-unobtainable "Diamante" appellations. The disc-shaped panels on either flank are framed by crisp, wrapping ridgelines, which form yet another facet from the rim down the fore, through the heel and up the aft of the bowl. That geometric aesthetic continues through the paneled, flaring shank, which rises ever-so-slightly from the bowl and is topped by an abbreviated, jet-black mouthpiece. The artisan has accented this structural piece with a band of handsomely grained olivewood at the shank end, its pale and inky hues contrasting the smooth, crimson-hued discs and light stain of the stummel. It should comes as no surprise that the birdseye on this piece is just amazing, given the Italian carver is known for his innate ability to carve the briar to best show off its grain. The tight-knit swirls dominate the flanks of bowl and shank, with fetching cross grain seen gracing the rim.
