Claudio Cavicchi: Brown Sandblasted Bent Apple Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-400-3152
While we've seen bent Apple renditions similar to this example from Italian artisan Claudio Cavicchi before, this profile is by no means a common one, having been seen less than a handful of times in the past. The overall length of this pipe is just over five and a half inches, making it relatively compact compared to the amount of substance present in the composition, the entire silhouette possessed of a pronounced sinuousness. The shank here lifts gracefully as it pushes out of the open transition, tapering gently to meet the black acrylic stem, itself continuing the taper. The duo additionally boasts a square paneling throughout its travel, seeing four ridgelines surrounding it and lending the combination a firm, muscular aesthetic that balances the bowl's supple roundness. Said bowl is quite hearty as well, with ample curves and a low-set waistline that fills out the contours of the fingers well, tapering to its rim and taking on a slight forward cant for some added dynamism. Dressed in one of Cavicchi's warm, earthy sandblasts, this pipe boasts some incredible ring grain rippling around the bowl, while the underside is awash with textural birdseye.-John McElheny
