Brebbia: Jumbo Golden Bent Bulldog (2724)

#1 von Arno , 02.03.2010 13:57


"Tilting towards the impressive dimensions of one of Ser Jacapo's myriad of whimsical giants (and yes, that was a perhaps overly-veiled allusion to Don Quixote), this Brebbia "Jumbo Golden" provides a fine example of how to do a larger pipe right. In the overall form, the pipe's greater size gives it weight, enough weight to let you know you're holding something nice and solid, without so much as to make it in any way awkward. Additionally there's the shape: in a small pipe there's little to be done to make it more comfortable in the hand, but here Brebbia shows that making a larger pipe more comfortable is simply (if not necessarily easily) a matter of shaping all that extra briar just right. Lastly there's the chamber; many makers can go overboard here, making pipes which when filled would be less a pleasure to finish, than a trial of endurance. Brebbia, however, has recognized that less really can be more. In this case, that means more thickness to the chamber wall, ensuring that though this Bulldog might take a little longer to get warmed up, once it does it's warmth will be all the more steady and comforting.
