Mastro Geppetto: Pipe of the Year 2021 Liscia with Silver (2)
Product Number: 002-819-0417
This Rhodesian from Mastro Geppetto is a full-bodied, muscular piece, featuring two beadlines set below the canonical, domed rim, demarcating it from the rest of the stummel. The robust bowl is balanced in profile by the firm, rounded shank that extends out of the hearty transition. The shank is bolstered by a silver mount displaying a myriad of Pinocchios, adding a dose of flash to the pipe's reserved aesthetic. A saddle stem of jet-black acrylic tops off the design, making a subtle downturn for a relaxed smoking posture. The stummel wears the handsome, dark chestnut Liscia ("smooth" in Italian) finish, perfectly encapsulating some fetching birdseye across one flank and wind-swept flame grain across the other.
Every year, Mastro Geppetto releases a Pipe of the Year, a commemorative shape with a specially-engraved Pinocchio band of silver, offered in a variety of finishes which then become highly collectible. For 2021, the shape is a slightly bent Rhodesian, displaying a broad, conical bowl, twin beadlines, and a straight, stout shank coupled to a gently downturned black acrylic saddle stem. Pocket-friendly, yet a healthy handful of briar, it is sure to be an instant favorite for lovers of the shape who appreciate Italian neoclassic design.
