Ascorti Peppino Series 2009 Commemorative Edition Pipe 2009 is a very special year in the history of Ascorti Pipes. This year, Roberto will only reintroduce and carve one shape for the Peppino Series Edition. This shape will be in remembrance of the passing of his father, Peppino in 1984. This beautiful "Shape 158" from the original Caminetto Shape Chart was one of Peppino's first creations as told to us by his wife Paola. Only 82 total pipes in total will be produced divided between the Peppino and regular Ascorti series pipes. Each pipe comes with a handwritten letter from Paola, thanking all pipe smokers for remembering her husband in this commemorative edition pipe.
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.
