Ser Jacopo Jucunda S2 Sandblasted Dublin Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked

Out of stock


Ser Jacopo is likely the most famous contemporary example of high-grade, workshop-made Italian pipes. It also belongs to a very special tradition in Italian pipe-making, having been established by Giancarlo Guidi and Bruno Sordini after the two had left another great Italian workshop, Mastro de Paja. Together, Guidi and Sordini created a brand of pipes that reflected their Renaissance sensibilities – even the figurehead of Ser Jacopo happens to be taken from a painting of a nobleman from centuries past – one that would soon become esteemed for creating unique and beautiful tobacco pipes that smoked just as well as they looked.

Ser Jacopo’s Jucunda (Latin for ‘delightful’) series is a distinct and rare one. Allow me to explain: like early Dunhills, as well as Ashton, Ferndown, and a select few Radice pipes, Ser Jacopo’s Jucunda pipes undergo an oil curing process during their production. In other words, their stummels are bathed in special oils and then heated and dried to ‘sweat’ out these oils, along with impurities in the briar. As this is a time- and labor-intensive process, only the Jucunda line receives this treatment, and production is very limited.

Aside from the unique production method, this Ser Jacopo is also simply a very beautiful pipe. It is a Dublin-poker hybrid (and therefore a sitter) with excellent ring grain sandblasting and a woodsy staining in the Italian style.

It is also completely unsmoked, having come to us through our trade-in program from a collector of high-grade Italian pipes. This previous owner was also careful enough to keep it with its original box and sleeve.
