I've really enjoyed watching young Mr. Penzo develop his style in the past 1.5 years. When SPdotcom picked up his pipes, congratulations were in order.

Earlier this year he made me a terrific sandblasted lovat for me that smokes like a charm. After seeing his work of late in the smooth finish realm I concocted an idea for a new pipe. It is complete..

A bulbous cutty influenced, horn floced, army mounted piece in a dainty size. Can't wait to fire it up.

My other Penzo is a terrific smoke. One of my larger chambers so I use it when I want a long smoke.
If you go to YouTube and search his name there's a cool little video of him in his workshop.

Educate me please. What is that beautiful material that the bowl is made out of?

It's made from Italian erica arborea root.
:mrgreen: Now you need to get some pipes made from Turkish sepiolite. Beautiful Penzo Brian, but if the stem is going directly into the ferrule with no briar contact, take care when removing and replacing it to prevent galling.

The utmost care will be given..

I had an Anastasopoulos Rhodesian with horn at the mortise. He applied a small cylinder of Briar on the interior of the horn to improve contact.

Now that is very forward thinking. I have a Nonpareil that I'm terrified to take apart!

It has arrived.
I'm pleased to see the horn extension has a briar interior..terrific fitment. The finish is like glass just like in the pictures. Pleased as punch.
