Rinaldo: Lithos Bent Apple (YY) (Megas)
Product Number: 002-031-0516
A Rinaldo "Megas" from Elio and Guido Rinaldo of Pesaro, Italy, this giant Apple is more than a handful, and while the tobacco chamber is deep, it is not excessively wide, so it should smoke more like a regular Billiard than, say, a Pot. Clearly an armchair pipe, its massive exterior is covered in the gnarly, duo-tone rustication of the workshop, and features a smooth, curved rim slightly inclined toward the chamber. Elio and Guido began pipemaking in their teens, in 1974, at the Mastro de Paja workshop, launching their own brand, Rinaldo, in 1987, and for the past 22 years have been producing their own designs, each pipe handmade from start to finish.- Chuck Stanion
