Ser Jacopo: Rusticated Rhodesian (R1) (E) (Maxima Maxima Maxima)
Product Number: 002-171-2758
A truly substantial, lengthy take on the Rhodesian, this piece from Ser Jacopo is well-deserving of the trio of Maxima stamps it received. The bowl is notably slightly longer than it is wide and forgoes the shape's characteristic beadlines in favor of a smooth polished ridgeline, which serves to accentuate the pronounced, bulging waistline. It's a real handful indeed, but thankfully, that handful is thoroughly packed with dark rusticated briar, offering loads of rich, stimulating texture no matter how you chose to hold it. And should you at some point eventually tire or need a break, the shank's underside has been flattened, allowing it to sit sturdily on flat surfaces without fear of spilling any ash. The chamber within is incredibly generous and though it may require a significant amount of briar to create one of these Maxima pipes, none of it has gone to waste here.- Jeffery Sitts
