Radice: Rind Hawkbill
Product Number: 002-030-3576
There's no artisan as closely associated with the Hawkbill shape as Luigi Radice. He didn't invent the shape — no one seems to know who did — but he was working as a pipe maker at Castello when it first appeared from their workshop, and over the decades he has most likely made more of them than any other artisan. While the Hawkbill has since appeared in many variations, this one is presented in a slenderized style, with a rounded Apple bowl hanging from the far end of the shape's signature aquiline shank and stem. Here in the Rind finish, you can expect pleasant texture in hand to accompany the wonderful smoking characteristics that have helped make Radice famous.- Chuck Stanion
