Don Carlos Notturno Horn Shaped Pipe W/ Facet Long Shank

$160.00

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Frankly, I didn’t know whether to call this Bruto Sordini piece a horn shape or a Cobra shape, but finally opted on the former although I won’t be offended if you think differently. It is a large and beautiful pipe with swirling birdseye and cross grain all over the place. Sordini often gives highly contrasting stain pipes that he makes the “Notturno” name (it means “night” in Italian), and this pipe has no cleft notes designation either. What I think really makes this pipe nice is the way Sordini created a facet long shank. I know how hard that is to create after hearing from other pipe makers, and it speaks volumes about the creative skill (for many decades), of this outstanding pipe maker. This piece has been smoked just a few times and is super clean and the stem is bite mark free.

Please Note: All previously owned and smoked pipes in Pipestud’s Consignment Shop have had the tobacco chambers reamed (if needed), and the exteriors polished. No internal cleaning has been done as I leave that very personal part of the ready to smoke process up to each buyer. I never sell estate pipes with undisclosed issues. If you are not totally satisfied with your purchase, all you need to do is return the pipe to me in the same condition that you received it in (you cannot have smoked the pipe), and you will receive an immediate refund including any shipping fees you incurred.
