    Well just the other day i was asked by my father to help re-model a bathroom cause i used to be a contract painter for a big company, so I had no problem helping. Well took about 2 days cause of all the paint wasent very hard work at all, and i was expecting nothing in return. But being the way my father is that didnt happen, he went out and bought me a pipe for my time. Now before then i have never heard of this maker before but i was stunned at how great it looked and how well it was put together. Its a Aldo Velani, and its a quarter bent black sandblasted Rhodesian. I'm in awe of how good of a pipe this is, just smoke so good!!!! Well i suppose i can post a pic of it seeing how some say no pics it never happened lol.

    ""Aldo Velani is a line imported from Italy by Lane Limited, Dunhill's distributor. Made mostly in Livorno by Cesare Barontini, one of the best known private-label manufacturers, Aldo Velani pipes are classic shapes with an Italian 'twist,' according to Frank Blews, a spokesman for Lane. "Billiards with more 'ball,' bulldogs with more 'jaw,"' is the way he characterizes the line. A medium to large pipe specifically developed for American tastes, the finishes use the names of Italian wines - Soave, Novello, Barolo, Refosco - to suggest their colors, and there is a lot of ornamental work."
