    Italy’s Scapin Custom Carbon Ivor has been put through the paces and the results are very good. Refined finish work, a clean and easy build up with tube shapes and detail that push the boundaries of what a lot of people expect in “hand-made custom carbon”, all offered with a Lifetime Warranty from a company with decades in the business.
