    Recently scored a Gigante series 2 Egg tomato. Terrific birdseye up and down both sides of the wide, squashed shank.
    ...and who wouldn't want a happy duck head staring at you while smoking?
    I'm really digging the extra wide bit too. Seems to be drilled extra wide too..smokes like a Castello. Keeps me puffing consistently, yet the bowl barely gets warm to the touch. I'm impressed.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    I have a L'Anatra poker and it's a great pipe. And I agree about the duck's head; it's cool to me.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Never heard of them, but seeing that makes me think...crap there goes my PAD

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    That's a marvelous looking pipe Brian! I have two ducks: a billiard and a full bent apple.
    They took a long time to break in and lose their woody, "green" taste; but it was worth the effort.
    I think L'Anatra and Ser Jacopo are related in some way, but their briar seems to be very different.

    Tbradsim1, tremendous looking poker. I bet that's a long smoke!

    Cortez, I assumed as much about breaking it in. The chamber was virgin and just looked like it would take some serious smoking to get a good cake going. I've been trying!

    I'm waiting on my first one to arrive. It's an e-bay purchase (with really crappy pic)..........

    Love the duck, but the smoke is disappointing.

    I am a fan. I have one with a duck on the stem 'flat' and one with the sticking out duck. They are nice looking. I don't think either of mine are as nice as yours. That is a nice looking pipe! Well done.

    L'Anatra makes pipes without the duck, if you prefer that, as I would.
