Deep bends and curves make this Italian pipe a one-of-a-kind treasure. Somehow the pipemaker has drilled at a curve (I suspect using magic) and made a shape resembling the traditional gourd calabash out of briar. It’s fitted with a simple, tapered vulcanite stem to preserve the simplicity and elegance of the shape. The stain is light-to-medium and the bowl is free of pits and fills. Measuring 6″ with a 2 1/8″ bowl, this is a great buy on a unique pipe!
