The shapes and design of Cavicchi pipes are very recognizably “Italian Classic”, which stays within the conservative English classic shapes while stylized with unmistakable Italian flair. Claudio’s work displays great attention paid to each piece of briar.
The shaping and design of his pipes always conform and aim to maximize the character of each block of briar. Claudio personally inspects and selects every piece of briar that he uses for his pipes as he frequents the workshops of Italian briar cutters. Though it is almost impossible to identify the origin of each piece of briar, Claudio mostly uses Tuscany, Ligurian, and Calabrian briar.
