Radice: Clear 'Gold' Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-030-4523
In the 1960s and 70s, Luigi Radice worked at two of the most acclaimed Italian marques, Castello and Caminetto. After cementing himself as one of Italy's best pipe makers, he began to craft pipes with his sons under the family name. This Billiard by Radice packs serious muscularity into a compact form, pairing a firm, cylindrical bowl to a thick shank-and-stem arrangement that still fit comfortably in a pocket due to the Nosewarmer size. Additionally, this pipe bears Radice's "Gold" stamp, which is reserved for pipes with superb grain patterns. The pattern really shines around the bowl, as thin rippling strands of vertical grain standout in the warm auburn hues of Radice's Clear finish.--Zach Podl
