Il Duca: Smooth Apple (C)
Product Number: 002-427-0425
Equally proficient with both sturdy, muscular shapes and lithe, slender designs, Max Rimensi of Il Duca pipes here offers an Apple with a bowl-centric disposition. That bowl is broad and round, somewhat vertically compressed in near Tomato form, with a firm heel and gentle curvature to the flat rim, and perched at the end of the shank with an impression of independence. Max's distinctive contrast stain commends the grain throughout this composition, which ascends the bowl in tight tendrils of visually diverting excellence. Most noticeable is the shank, pencil trim and, in contrast to the generous shaping of the bowl, leading away in a lithe, slender, and dramatic extension as it joins the tapered mouthpiece. At just over six inches in length, it's a larger piece than it first appears, housing a tobacco chamber with dimensions adequate for lengthy smoking sessions, all in a creative form that will maximize one's appreciation for what can be done with the traditional Apple shape.
