Claudio Cavicchi: Brown Sandblasted Acorn (Il Gigante) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-400-3470

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 in either a smooth or sandblasted finish. Although Claudio Cavicchi commonly crafts traditionally sized pieces, his Il Gigante series represent the largest pipes in his portfolio. This Il Gigante Acorn by Claudio Cavicchi possesses a plump, shapely bowl, its walls gently flaring from the palm-filling heel to the broad, inflated rim. Furthermore, the walls showcase the craggy, undulating growth rings that were exposed by the chestnut sandblast, while the rim and heel are awash with whorls of birdseye. Moreover, the rounded shank and saddle stem showcase a subtle bend, which creates a surprisingly comfortable smoking posture considering the massive size and weight.
