Rinaldo: Sahara Cutty with Silver (1) (YYY) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-031-0827
Elio and Guidi Rinaldo began crafting pipes as teenagers for Mastro de Paja, before going into business for themselves. Elio and Guidi are the only carvers at Rinaldo, and they produce pipes of stellar quality at an astonishing rate. The Cutty is a shape Rinaldo seldom crafts, making this piece an exceptionally rare offering from the Italian workshop. The willowy profile flows from the slender and sinuous shank-and-stem arrangement to the forward-ebbing bowl, which rises with a dynamic momentum to the sharp fore. Additionally, the stummel is dressed in a craggy sandblast, highlighting a detailed array of growth rings in a dark mahogany stain that's complemented by a glimmering silver band on the shank end.--Zach Podl
