Mastro Geppetto’s pipe of the year comes with a unique silver band carved with the namesake puppet maker’s long nosed Pinocchio. It’s a fun accent that’s subtle enough to not distract from the pipe: a perfectly executed, thick-walled pot with a pale rusticated finish. The military mounting joins to a Danish style saddle stem. 5 1/4″ long with a wide mouthed, 1 5/8″ bowl. This particular pipe has a light, craggy finish that will darken with time and use.
