Il Duca: Barone Sandblasted Morta Apple (B2)
Product Number: 002-427-0289
On one hand, this is one of Max's most conservative designs: a very nice, simple, Italian-neoclassical Apple. On the other hand, he did render it in black morta instead of briar — fitting to Max's penchant for alternative mediums. Where this pipe really stands out though, is in something very subtle: the material of the stem. Somewhere he's turned up a dark, dark blue/moss green/black brindled vulcanite I've never seen on pipes before, and I have to say it's very interesting stuff; as much as the hues are novel, the shades are such that it's brindled nature is more subdued than traditional cumberland.
