Posella Pipes

I first saw Posella pipes in 2007 when I attended the Festa della Pipa in Cagli, Italy. I was very impressed with them and what I thought was a unique carve.

The maker of these pipes is Vitaliano Posella of Regio Calbria, Italy.

Despite the fact that his pipes are not well known in the international pipe community (as they deserve to be), his long career as a pipemaker has been a storied and infulential one.

 
Vitaliano's father was a briar cutter operating a small sawmill based in Calabria, home of one of the best Italian briars. Vitaliano started making pipes with his brother-in-law, Tonino Jacono, more than 30 years ago, utilizing their family business as their exclusive source of briar. After a few years, Tonino Jacono moved to Jesi and decide to make pipes under his own name. Meanwhile, Vitaliano continued his small production of pipes that, under the circumstances, never reached beyond the local market.

It was not until a few years ago when Vitaliano began to work in cooperation with a few well recognized and reputable pipe dealers that the marketing of Posella pipes began to move in the right direction.

The attention to detail he puts into his pipes is clearly evident. Starting from the lowest "R" grade up to the highest straight grain grade "F3", Posella pipes perfectly display the unmistakable Italian flair and proportioning, even within the confines of classic billiard, dublin and apple shapes.

The Engineering of Posella pipes is always nothing short of excellent. This is the reflection of Vitaliano's philosophy as a pipemaker, which is that every pipe should be a great smoker.
