Il Duca: Barone Sandblasted Apple (B2)

Product Number: 002-427-0235

Max is a very versatile artisan, and admittedly that can sometimes make it hard to pin down just which style, or styles, he's drawn from in creating a particular pipe. When it comes to this elegant straight Apple, I'm leaning towards the Japanese - there's a definite organic feel to the presentation of the bulb-like bowl, not to mention the elegant forms of the shank and stem which follow it up. The finish, however, is something else, displaying the kind of extra-crisp texture and warm, earthy contrast stain that tends to be the territory of those American artisans who specialize in particularly fine sandblasting.
