Caminetto Business 109 KS Rusticated Straight Brandy Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]

Out of 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.’

While Caminetto is known today for its elegant, distinctly Italian pipes, there was a time when it was more known for its rustic and rugged – though no less Italian – pipes. The ‘Business’ was their take on the country’s famed rusticated finishes, which makes sense given its founder’s previous employment at Castello. The Business, as can be seen here, was rougher and more craggy than Castello’s Sea Rock, producing something halfway between rustication and a deep sandblast. It’s the kind of pipe that feels great in the hand and will not let you down. With a chamber as deep as this one, it’ll keep going for a good while each smoke too.

The condition is very good. There’s some inner rim darkening, but it’s not especially noticeable amid the rusticated finish, and a some stem chatter.
