Radice: Rind Billiard with Faux Bamboo Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-030-8032

With years of experience working for such style-defining Italian marques as Castello and Caminetto, Luigi Radice sought to apply his knowledge to crafting his own pipes, establishing the Radice brand in 1980. Joined by his father, Paolo, and his son, Gianluca, Luigi would further develop his distinctively bold shaping style within his family-run workshop. Playful in its design, this Billiard from Radice is centered around a firm, upright bowl, its straight walls rising from heel to rim. Gently lifting from the transition is a shank that's been intricately carved to resemble three knuckles of bamboo, with the end punctuated by an abbreviated, subtly downturned stem. The shank's light, smooth finish contrasts well with the dark, craggy rustication offered by Radice's Rind finish wrapping around the bowl, both offering a wealth of visual and textural intrigue.
