Claudio Cavicchi: Black Sandblasted Bent Brandy Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-400-3141
One of Italy's finest pipe makers, Claudio Cavicchi has carved pipes for over 40 years and is still going strong. Cavicchi crafts a wide variety of shapes, and each one showcases spectacular grain patterns dressed in his signature smooth and sandblasted finishes. This stout bent Brandy from Cavicchi features a stocky shank-and-stem arrangement that serves to balance the hefty bowl, giving the pipe a well-distributed, even weight. Said bowl displays an atypical Brandy shape; instead of the symmetric, dramatic upward taper, this forward-urging bowl severely tapers from transition to rim, but quite subtly from heel to rim, giving the bowl a dynamic, rigid geometry that feels superbly comfortable in one's hand. Furthermore, one of Cavicchi's dark sandblasts gives the stummel a delightfully rugged texture, further adding to the captivating in-hand feel of this pipe.--Zach Podl
