This is a new, sandblasted nose warmer billiard, by Italian pipe maker, Mastro Beraldi.

While a lot of Beraldi's work tends to be more on the whimsical side, this is a straight up, Italian muscle pipe; a modern take on the classic, Caminetto Business pipe.  As such, this pipe means business and looks like it will make a great smoker!

That said, the sandblasting on this takes on a very organic, Italian flourish, and, along with the almost matte black finish, reminds me of Hawaiian lava rock.  While the thick bowl looks almost chimney like, it has a nice, slight rake on the front end that makes this pipe a pleasure to hold. And the saddle stem goes a long way to keep this pipe clenchable.

A workhorse, for sure, this is in brand new, unsmoked condition and comes with the original pipe sock.
