The Ascorti Arb Pipe, crafted from the Corbezzolo Tree “Arbutus." With the green of its leaves, the white of its flowers and the red of its fruit, the tree reproduces the Italian flag and has always been the official tree symbol of Dante, Michelangelo and Leonardo’s homeland. The little shrub belongs to the” Ericacee” family, which is a close relative of the arboreal tree “Erica Arborea” and grows predominately on the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea. Ascorti, after careful and prolonged experiments to offer a high quality product presents its pipes in Corbezzolo line. Thanks to a proper and careful seasoning process, they introduce a very light pipe with perfect combustion and with an extraordinarily beautiful sandblasting. Hand Made in Italy Pipemaking craftsmanship at its very best by master pipe maker Roberto Ascorti. Ascorti's briar is carefully cured and seasoned until all excess resin and moisture disappear, leaving a featherlight and absorbent briar block. No two Ascorti pipes are ever exactly alike, as each is carved by hand to the optimum shape dictated by the natural grain of the briar. Fitted with a hand-carved Lucite stem which never tarnishes and boxed with a beautiful leather glove. Production and availability are limited.
Please note: Each Ascorti pipe is hand carved and unique. Due to the limited availability this pipe is subject to prior sale.
