COMMENT:

This is one of Cavicchi's latest models, and though the basic idea behind the shape is not new to Cavicchi, with a few touches, he managed to give us a truly fresh and unique shape. Here are a few examples of these touches: (1) The bowl shape, when considered alone, is indeed that of an Egg, (2) The way the pipe is shaped and bent closely resembles the Oom Paul (Hungarian), (3) The shank extends beyond the bowl base, creating an elegant heel, (4) The end of the shank where the mouthpiece goes is wavy, and finally (5) The saddle mouthpiece is an Army Mount.

COMMENT:

I think we both agree that the most accurate definition of the shape is that of a Dublin. However, you might be wondering why I chose to add the word "freeform". Well, this addition has nothing to do with the bowl shape itself, which I believe is a good and accurate representation of the classic Dublin. What forced me to use the word "Freeform" is actually the shank. As you may note, the shank is quite long, measuring about 49mm (1.93 inches); this is most definitely a deviation from the classic Dublin which would normally have a much shorter shank. The grain here is clearly indicative of the very, very high value of the 3C grade. It is hard to believe that this very, very good grain had led Claudio to put the pipe in the entry grade of the smooth natural. The grain is a mixture of Flame Grain around the bowl and on the two sides of the shank, and Bird's Eye on the bowl top and base. In spite of the amount of wood and the relatively large size of the pipe, it feels so well balanced and even light in weight. I'm very confident that it will be a pleasure to clench on this pipe, if this is how you smoke your pipes.
