Radice: Summer 2022 Rind Pure Bent Billiard with Silver and Leather Bag Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-030-4310
The second installment in Radice's four-part seasonal series, the Summer edition is distinguished by a custom-cast silver accent band emblazoned with sun icons. Each pipe in the series is also presented with a felt-lined leather carrying case for protection and convenience with no shortage of style. Founded in 1980 by Luigi "Gigi" Radice, his namesake company has been at the forefront of Italian pipe making for decades, well-regarded for the quality design and attractive presentation of their expertly carved pieces.
Each seasonal installment features a single shape offered in a variety of finishes. This Summer pipe is a robust bent Billiard, one of Radice's most popular shapes. This rendition of the classic shape boasts a straight-walled deep-chambered bowl resting on a strong heel paired to an upturned muscular shank. The series' signature silver band adorns the shank's junction with a comfortably bent acrylic saddle stem. This pipe's bent design and jaunty disposition make it perfect to smoke on a sunny stroll. Dressed in Radice's Rind Pure rustication, this piece offers plenty of texture that will darken and patinate with age and use for a rugged yet refined aesthetic.-Gabriel Bass
