Il Duca: Sandblasted Reverse Calabash Apple (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0428
Though the word "chubby" isn't in the title of this Il Duca briar, I suspect it possibly should have been, as this piece pushes some serious boundaries in terms of overt plumpness coupled with compact, nosewarmer length. The chamber within is fairly generous, surrounded on all sides by thick supporting walls, and it's finished in one of Max's more impressive contrast sandblasts, the combination of smoky hues and crisp texture creating something that is appealing both to the eye and the hand. It houses reverse Calabash engineering, and a small, barely discernible flat at the bowl's underside allows it to sit with aplomb.- Jeffery Sitts
