Becker One Club Lumberman Rusticated Estate Briar Pipe, Italian Estates [SOLD OUT]
Out of stock
The Becker family is one of Italy’s most renowned pipe-making lineages. Beginning with the painter, sculptor, and WW2 British intelligence officer Fritz Becker, the Becker name became synonymous with Italian high-quality pipes after Fritz was discovered by Giorgio Musico, a pipe-maker himself, and owner of a popular pipe shop in Rome. Both Fritz and Giorgio had sons, Paolo Becker and Massimo Musico who learned pipe-making from their fathers and would go on to collaborate in making the famous Becker & Musico pipes, before parting to return to making Becker pipes and Musico pipes once more. Paolo passed away in 2014, but his son, Federico continues to make Becker pipes, to continued acclaim.
This pipe from the late Paolo Becker is a good representative of the Becker style – traditional shapes with a distinct Italian flair, added here by Paolo’s choice of finish. This classical lumberman is dressed in Becker’s signature rustication, the very Italian, black and rocky rustication that is just about as iconic as Castello’s Sea Rock line. This pipe, however, has its rim left smooth and polished, adding a little something extra to this hand made gem. While the pipe is extraordinarily long, it is not at all heavy, which is a sign of the high quality of the briar used. Though there are some light scratches on the lucite mouthpiece, it is otherwise in a fantastic condition, and promises to be a trusty, stylish companion for many decades more.
