Luigi Viprati, 1 Clover. #56

$310.00

Luigi Viprati has been making pipes since 1972. In that time he has built a reputation for hand crafting some of the most breathtaking straight grains & sandblasts available anywhere. No one realizes this more than Viprati who has built strong personal relationships with the mills or "segerie" which supply his briar, and he visits them periodically to hand select each block of the extra-extra plateaux briar. Viprati has often accompanied the harvesting crew(s) into the dry hills of Tuscany to insure that he gets the best blocks possible.

 

This particular pipe exemplifies some Bird's Eye and Swirl grain. The pipe fits very comfortably in the hand and the beautifully done swirl of colors in the acrylic stem contrast just enough with the finish of the pipe to really make this pipe stand out! The pipe sits firmly and is a truly gorgeous piece that is sure to make a great smoker as well as a wonderful addition to the pipe rack!

 

The Luigi Viprati Clover system is his way of grading the pipes that are not a part of his various "Collection" series. They usually rank between 1 and 5 clovers. The more clovers, the higher the grade of that particular pipe.
