Il Duca: Sandblasted Morta Rhodesian (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0483
This pipe is crafted from morta, semi-petrified bog oak that pipe makers and smokers have been enjoying for many decades. What's particularly attractive about morta is its sandblasted, geometrically crisscrossing grain patterns that are tight and mesmerizing. This Il Duca Rhodesian from Max Rimensi has a very wide, oval shank-and-stem combination, tapering gently toward the button. The stem is cumberland, adding just a touch of refined color to the overall palette. There is no beadline on this pipe; Max has instead opted for a single, crisp ridgeline encircling the bowl just above the transition, an element that permits the grain all of the space it could want to show off.- Chuck Stanion
