Pipa Tom Spanu made of briar Erica natural Scoparia hand-picked in Sardinia and aged 5 years.
The scoparia heather, in Sardinian dialect Castanàrgiu, has a slightly reddish color and is fire resistant.
The flaming and the color of this Tom Spanu pipe in radica d'erica are wonderful!
The wood to make the pipe is harvested by hand in the Mediterranean scrub of Sardinia, and then worked in the Spanu sawmill in Alghero.
This polished briar pipe by Tom Spanu has a classic bullcap shape with a high chimney and balanced dimensions.
The long seasoning of the briar root allows to contain the weight and to have a dry smoke.
The veins of the heather root and its luster complete each other in the design of the pipe.
Note the amber methacrylate reinforcement flock between the torch and the mouthpiece.
Note the flat foot of the pipe that allows easy support on any surface.
Tom Spanu took the most representative woods of Sardinia, Erica Scoparia, olive, cork and lemon and turned them into wonderful tobacco pipes.
The whole Spanu family collaborates in the search for the best briar root, in the seasoning and finishing of the extraordinary briar pipes.
The Tom Spanu pipes follow a classification of quality and perfection indicated by the letter F, F2, F3 ...
All woods and briars are hand-picked in the selected Sardinian Mediterranean scrub, seasoned and processed in the Alghero sawmill.
The Tom Spanu pipes, made personally and exclusively by hand, are the result of a long and patient process.
In an attempt to always be at the top and to offer ever more new products to his pipe lovers, Tom Spanu has been using other types of wood for years, such as lemon, olive and myrtle and materials such as cork.
