Rinaldo: Sahara Bent Billiard (YYY) (Titania)
Product Number: 002-031-0528
Big, bold, exceptionally grained, and imbued with hearty proportions throughout — this is the sort of pipe that immediately comes to mind when one first thinks of the Rinaldo brothers' work. As a Titania designated briar, you can expect some seriously long smokes from its deep, cavernous chamber, yet the entire form still retails a beautiful, artful aesthetic in profile — balancing stout proportions with smooth curves and a bit of whimsy in the gesture of the shank and stem. It's been finished in the workshop's Sahara sandblast, bringing out an exceptional array of wavy ring grain and offering an abundance of crisp texture to enjoy in hand. The smooth rim has been chamfered for contrast and to allow for easy packing, while the acrylic stem is one of the more ornately shaped ones we've seen from Rinaldo.- Andrew Wike
