Ser Jacopo: Spongia Rusticated Stack (R2) (D) (Maxima Maxima Maxmia Maxima)
Product Number: 002-171-2838
"Maxima" in Italian, I infer, means "really big, like, huge," and with this Rusticated Stack from Ser Jacopo, we find four Maximas, so that's four times "really big," which is quite accurate. Big-times-four is exactly what this pipe is, filling the palm with substantial cylindricality (not a real word, but English is depressingly insufficient for Ser Jacopo proportions). I have hands that can palm a basketball, but I can't reach all the way around this pipe so that my fingers meet. Thankfully, it's a firm sitter, lest one's smoking arm become asymmetrically and freakishly muscular. No one wants one regular arm and one that appears to have been surgically transplanted from Popeye, and Ser Jacopo has thoughtfully circumvented that inevitability with this design, which features a domed, smooth rim visually separated from the bowl by a single, crisp beadline.- Chuck Stanion
