Radice: Rind Aero Reverse Calabash Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-030-8011

Stout, chubby, and housing a vast internal condensation chamber within its shank, Radice's Aero designs are the perfect fusion of playful aesthetics and functional practicality. They've become quite popular since their release years ago, and aside from just being downright charming, they also represent Gigi and sons' long tradition of pipe making — it actually being a multi-generational series. This particular Billiard is finished in a vivd, auburn-stained rustication and boasts a muscular outline that consistently draws the eye toward the fore. A cylindrical bowl and thick, tapering shank offer a reassuring weight in hand while keeping the footprint of this pipe compact, making for a sturdy and practical smoker.

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.
