Ser Jacopo: Pulchra La Fuma Finché Tira Smooth Bent Apple with Silver (C) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4398

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. Ser Jacopo's La Fuma, "The Smoke" in English, line of pipes is the first tier within their smooth-finished pieces, and presents a good value for the grain on display, made all the more tempting thanks to its inviting mahogany stain. The Pulchra series, whose name translates from Latin as "beautiful" and whose equivalent in English is pulchritudinous, is a line defined by its striking finishing techniques and accents. Said accents are most often combinations of acrylic and silver, almost always shaped into handsomely modern shank end mounts and stem base fitments which add a great deal of visual intrigue to the composition as a whole. This bent Apple is one such pipe, and it presents with a striking accent combination at the junction, with a broad, intricately detailed silver mount covering the shank end. A band of silver at the stem base enhances the presence of the silver, and the pairing also balances the visual weight of the bowl rather nicely, drawing the eye back from the fore. The shank itself is thick and lifts sharply, its pairing to the stem completing a sinuous S-curve that's suited to comfortable jaw-hanging. Up front, the bowl stands on a rounded heel and grows rotund, supple walls that make for a comfortable feel in hand, all while showcasing a wealth of handsome grain.
