Caminetto has a storied history among pipe smokers.
The company, founded in 1969 by two already well-known carvers, birthed superior quality pipes from day one. Pepino Ascorti and Luigi Radice knew the art of tobacco pipe carving like few others. As part of Castello, the company that brought Italian tobacco pipes to the world stage, these two friends knew a thing or two about carving a great smoking pipe. Together they produced some of the most popular pipes of the 1970’s. A third, lesser-known partner, Gianni Davoli, became responsible for the signature “mustache” shape which Cominetto became known for.
Today, Caminetto smoking pipes are made by Roberto Ascorti, Pepino’s son. The Caminetto pipes represent a high-line pipe, to display the younger Ascorti’s skills, while still holding true to the traditions of Caminetto’s well-known founders.
Caminetto pipes are often referred to as, “the jewelry of Italian pipe artistry.” Browse our selection of hand-carved Caminetto tobacco pipes and you’ll understand why.
