Ser Jacopo's

The Pipe Holmes would have smoked!X

At the our urging almost 20 years ago, Giancarlo put his brilliant design skills to creating these wonderful and unique Kalabashes. There've been other Kalabashes in the past, but none maintained the classical shape as does Ser Jacopo.

Giancarlo has never taken the easy road, and to produce a one piece Kalabash was no simple task. In figuring the geometry, it was realized that the bore defied conventional drills, and a specialized flexible one was configured to maintain the classical goose neck shank. The result is the first truly classical Kalabash in briar, and it has been one of the most popular of all of Ser Jacopo's pipes.

In the past few years, Giancarlo has added new models and design aspects to new shapes while remaining true to the original Kalabash shape.
