Mastro Geppetto: Pipe of the Year 2021 Rusticato Natural with Silver
Product Number: 002-819-0420
For those who seek pipes in natural finishes, eager to watch as they gain the character of patination, this Rhodesian from Mastro Geppetto deserves serious attention. It wears Rusticato texture on the shank and lower bowl portion, leaving the bowl's upper cone virgin-smooth in unadorned beauty. Between the light hues of the stummel and a jet-black acrylic stem, an intricate silver band with Pinocchios all around it provides contrast and a striking flash of elegance.
Every year, Mastro Geppetto releases a Pipe of the Year, a commemorative shape with a specially-engraved Pinnochio 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.- Joel Balyeat
