Ser Jacopo: Delecta Rusticated Bent Apple with Silver (R1) (D) (Maxima) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4337

Founded in 1982 by Giancarlo Guidi, Ser Jacopo has built a reputation on crafting high-quality briars that are renowned for their robust proportions and playful shaping cues. The Italian atelier's style has since defined the Pesaro style of pipe making, each of their pipes imbued with a sense of character and reflecting the whimsical creativity that went into crafting them. Though Guidi passed away in 2012, his legacy lives on not only in the pipes he crafted, or the company he founded, but in the language of design that he helped to pioneer. The Italian workshop's Delecta series is defined by its stylized shank end and stem base that often incorporates a combination of silver, acrylic, and briar. A swift, crisply defined flare out to the face typifies the shank end, while the stem's tenon or base is often extended to provide a separation between the stummel and stem and showcase more of its accenting material. A robust, "Maxima" proportioned bent Apple benefits from this unique shank end combination, its surprisingly compact length possessed of a lovely sinuousness. A rather wide transition gives way to a lifting, tapering shank before meeting the silver Delecta mount and a stem of tapering, jet-black acrylic, its downturned bit lending the pipe a comfortable smoking posture. Up front, the bowl stands atop a rounded heel and boasts a low-set waistline, its walls taking on a slight forward cant and arcing taper to the rim. The hearty substance of this piece affords the stummel ample space to showcase a craggy rustication and rich, earthy stain, offering plenty of texture to appreciate while smoking.
