Radice: 40th Anniversary Clear Billiard with Silver (OP) (125)
Product Number: 002-030-3888
Luigi Radice founded the Radice workshop in 1980 and has a long, respected career in pipe making, having helped co-found Caminetto and after that, working as a carver for Castello. Along with his sons, Gianluca and Marzio, "Gigi" has long maintained a reputation for quality work, his shaping and finishes instantly recognized in the pipe smoking community. The year 2020 marked the workshop's 40th anniversary, so the brand commemorated the occasion by releasing a limited edition of a singular shape, the Billiard, with selected finishes.
Bold, muscular shaping, a hallmark of the Italian brand, is displayed here, the tall, stout bowl featuring a firm, Italian-style heel. The ensuing muscular shank-and-stem arrangement taper toward the bit, another shaping cue common in Italian pipe making. This Billiard is dressed in the warm, honey-blonde stain of Radice's Clear finish, which highlights a wealth of beautiful birdseye on both flanks. Additionally, an engraved silver band separates stummel from stem, lending further elegant appeal.-Angela Robertson
