Radice: Rind Bent Pot Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-030-4572

Luigi Radice was born in 1939 and began his career working with briar in 1961, finding employment at the venerable Castello workshop. While working for the now legendary brand, Luigi met Giuseppe Ascorti, and the two left together in 1968 to found Caminetto, where he stayed for 12 years, before departing to establish Radice in 1980. With help from his son, Gianluca, and his father, Paolo, Luigi began producing pipes in a striking neoclassical style which quickly amassed acclaim from enthusiasts of such stylized works. Luigi was later joined by his other son, Marzio, and the family-run workshop has since become known not just for their unique take on the neoclassical style of pipe making, but their singular accenting and finishing techniques. From its extra bold heel to the the look of the silhouette overall, there's no doubt that this Radice bent Pot from Gigi and sons takes its origins from the iconic Castello "55" design. The heel here, however, is significantly sharper and more pointed, giving it a more rakish and jaunty look overall, yet it remains quite comfortable in hand. This example is finished in a dark, chestnut-tinged stain and the craggy rustication of the Rind series, topped with a jet-black, slightly downturned stem for a unified aesthetic.
