If you're looking for an elegant and sophisticated briar that sells for a lot less than comparable pipes, then the Baraccini Raffinato is just what you're looking for. The stummel is smooth with a golden tan stain and a soft finish. The stem is a swirled burgundy and amaretto cream-colored, durable acrylic stem. The finishing touch is a satin-finished white metal band encompassed by two goldtone rings. These briars smoke every bit as good as they look, and these Italian-made pipes come in some of the most popular shapes available.
