Il Duca: Sandblasted Acorn (B) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-427-0614

Massimiliano Rimensi of Ferrara, Italy, creates pipes under the name Il Duca in honor of the historical rulers of his native city. He draws inspiration from Danish and Italian pipe making to create a unique style all his own. This Acorn is a fine example of Rimensi's more eccentric side. The bowl features a broad, flared rim that tapers suddenly down to a spurred heel, creating a dynamic silhouette. A slim round shank arches gracefully upward from the transition, culminating in a flared junction to a sleek vulcanite stem. The Barone-grade stummel is dressed in a stunning dual stain, adding extra emphasis to the ochre rim as it contrasts with the darker heel and shank. The sandblasted finish reveals a wealth of texture, further completed by the stain and shaping to create a pipe with a distinctly organic and natural appeal.
