Il Duca: Sandblasted Stack (B) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-427-0613
An Italian pipe artisan with a broad portfolio rife with creativity and fine craftsmanship, Max Rimensi creates a variety of distinctly different designs, often skewing toward a more flowing, bowl-centric, neoclassic penchant. This iteration displays all of Max's inclinations in spades, offering a dramatically tall bowl with tapering sides perched at the end of a pencil shank and stem. The svelte nature of the continually tapering shank and stem amplify the bowl's presence in profile, making it seem to almost exist of its own accord, levitating in space. Despite the massive chamber and impressive length, the trim dimensions manage to keep the pipe miraculously light in hand. One of Max's crisp sandblasts dresses the stummel in ink-black texture, accentuating stacks of growth rings climbing the towering bowl. The brindled green-and-black vulcanite stem unifies the aesthetic, drawing the darker coloration of the stummel rearward while providing a demure dash of color and a pristine, hand-cut lip button.- Joel Balyeat
