Rinaldo: Lithos Bent Apple (YYY) (Megas)
Product Number: 002-031-0578
A Megas-designated pipe from Elio and Guido Rinaldo of Pesaro, Italy, this giant bent 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 a pipe to enjoy in a comfortable armchair, its massive exterior is covered in the gnarly, auburn-toned rustication of the workshop's Lithos series, and features a smooth, curved rim slightly inclined toward the chamber. Elio and Guido began pipe making in their teens, in 1974, at the Mastro de Paja workshop, launching their own brand, Rinaldo, in 1987, and for the past decades have been producing their own designs, each pipe handmade from start to finish.- Chuck Stanion
