The Luciano pipe was born from Luca di Piazza's desire to create a high quality pipe at an affordable price. Using quality briar seasoned no less than 2 years, the bowls of these custom-designed pipes are machine turned, and are then finished by hand in the traditional process used for fine briars. Since we began carrying this line of pipes, it's been one of our top sellers. The craftsmanship and dedication to excellence from Luca have set these pipes into a league of their own. Luciano pipes offer unique designs and shapes at a very reasonable price point. Act quickly, because as we've seen before with these pipes, the inventory doesn't last long!
