Ardor Urano Rusticated Straight Rhodesian Estate Briar Pipe, Italian Estates [SOLD OUT]
Out of stock
Like many Italian workshop brands, Ardor pipes are a family affair. The name itself is an acronym of Angelo Rovera and Dorelio Rovera, father and son pipe-makers who created the brand in 1972. The Rovera family’s history with pipes goes back much further, however, as Angelo’s own father, Francesco, had previously established the Sociedade Rovera pipe company with his brothers in 1911. All Ardor pipes are completely hand-made from briar that has been seasoned for at least 4-5 years, and the brand is noteworthy for its playful and innovative approaches to design. As a result, Ardor pipes are both quintessentially Italian, while also being somewhat different, having a style that is wholly their own.
This particular Ardor is from the brand’s ‘Urano’ line, named after the planet Uranus and featuring a very Italian dark rustication for most of its finish. The rim, however, is left smooth and polished and is slightly beveled towards the chamber. This is coupled with a tortoiseshell green lucite stem, which complements the dark finish rather nicely. It’s a fairly large pipe with a nicely deep and full chamber, which should suit long, relaxing smokes.
