The artistry Luigi Viprati put into this pipe is something to behold. It comes in a bright natural smooth finish, and while it doesn't conform to tradition shaping, the bowl takes on a paneled Billiard style which then leads into a frenzy of grooves - the pointed end of the bowl, which could be used against your enemies (although we urge you not to), creates an excellent in hand feel, with the shank taking on a button style of shaping and a grooved black acrylic stem to match. Certainly a one-of-a-kind piece. Stamped with 4 Clovers. Handmade in Italy.
