Musico: Sandblasted Acorn with Boxwood (Floodlight) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-008-0844

A tall style of Acorn that we don't often see from Musico, this pipe is a compact, lightweight piece that's well-suited for travel. The transition here is wide, with plenty of room to drape a digit as it gives way to a slightly extended and gingerly lifted shank, its round outline reaching toward a short saddle stem accented with boxwood at the base. Up front, the bowl stands atop a more rounded heel than we're used to seeing on an Acorn, though the walls' long, easy flare to a domed rim maintains the profile's iconic look. Dressed in a crisp, auburn-tinged sandblast, the stummel here showcases handsome grain throughout, with rippling growth rings flowing down the bowl.

In 1990, two notable sons of the pipe world joined together and opened up a shop together. Those two were Pablo Becker and Massimo Musicò, the sons of Fritz Becker and Giorgio Musicò, respectively, and two highly respected individuals within Italy's pipe sphere. Starting in 1995, the pair began making pipes together, with Pablo turning the stummels and Massimo crafting silver spigots and bands to pair with the pipes. The duo enjoyed great success during their partnership, but in 2002, Pablo decided to go back to making artisan pipes full-time under the Becker name. Massimo Continued making Musicò pipes, however, and added the Foundation name to subsequent releases, additionally including the rest of his family in the production of the pipes.
