Caminetto Business 101 KS, Rusticated Brandy Estate Briar Pipe
1 in stock
Caminetto was, and is to this day, a decisive figure in the history of Italy’s pipe workshop tradition. After spending time developing their skills in the Castello workshop, Sergio Ascorti and Luigi Radice left to found their own venture, which they named, ‘Caminetto.’ Here, Ascorti and Radice were able to create their own now-classic shapes and finishes, such as the rusticated ‘business,’ and the carved, wax-drip ‘new dear.’
Now this is interesting. Caminetto are historically known for their Italian interpretations of quite traditional pipe shapes, but this looks more like a Danish or Danish-American billiard, such as were pioneered by Jess Chonowitsch, and continued in the 21st century by J. Alan, Adam Davidson, Todd Johnson, et al. It’s a wide, muscular billiard, rusticated in the ‘Business’ finish, with an acrylic army style mount and a flared lucite stem. It’s lovely, but I must confess I did not know Italian workshop carvers made pipes like this.
It’s in great condition, with only a small amount of rim darkening to note overall. By the way, that’s not a crack in the side of the army style acrylic mount – it’s the Caminetto moustache logo!
