Il Duca: Smooth Apple (C)
Product Number: 002-427-0444
Trim, svelte, and straightforward, this Il Duca Apple calls to mind the pencil-shanked designs that have become a signature within Max Rimensi's vast portfolio. The bowl is curvaceous and well-rounded, the shank and stem consistently tapering toward the lip button and trailing away in the distance. Such shaping draws focus toward the bowl, which is fitting considering the exquisite flame grain that envelopes the bowl underneath the warm mahogany contrast stain. And while the slender shank may seem delicate or fragile, Max has reinforced it with a stainless steel tube that attaches to the mouthpiece in a reverse-tenon arrangement. It's truly a testament to the Italian artisan's attention to detail and his immaculate craftsmanship, resulting in an elegant piece that's also built to last and provide many years of smoking contentment.- Jeffery Sitts
