Ser Jacopo: Sandblasted Billiard with Silver (S2) (A) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4456

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. While we usually expect to see playful, dramatically stylized shapes from Ser Jacopo, the Pesaro workshop has here presented us with a far more classically-oriented piece in the form of this straight, Bing's Favorite-style Billiard. That all being said, this pipe is strikingly long, coming in at over seven inches in length thanks to the shank and stem's exaggerated proportions. This combination additionally contributes to an aerodynamic sleekness through the aft side, as the shank tapers to meet an even more slender stretch of saddle stem, balancing out the visual weight of the bowl quite well. Said bowl rests on a flat heel in Poker-like fashion and rises nearly two inches to the plateau-crowned rim, showcasing an organic, cylindrical shape that keeps the fore of this pipe stolid in comparison to the shank and stem. Dressing the briar here is a warm, auburn-hued sandblast that showcases rippling growth rings cascading down the bowl, while smooth briar at the shank adds rich contrast.
