Musico: Smooth Poker with Silver (Set)
Product Number: 002-008-0502
The Poker is often considered a utilitarian shape, originally designed to sit stably on a poker table while the owner dealt a hand of cards. However, this rendition from Italian workshop Musico bespeaks a different story to me, one of beauty, elegance, and poise. The upright bowl will certainly sit stably on its flattened heel, but I am too busy admiring the rich ruby stain, smooth finish, and birdseye-infused cross grain to be overly concerned with the pipe's mere functionality. The shank transition is low compared to many Pokers, almost flat with the table and climbing just slightly to make room for the stem to turn gently downward. The stem is sleek vulcanite, tapering in thickness while flaring to a wide fishtail as it reaches for the lip button. A handsome band of sterling silver graces the shank end, further elevating the pipe's elegance and adding excellent contrast. Highly functional and easy on the eyes, this will be a perfect companion for one lucky collector.- Joel Balyeat
