The "King" constitutes the pinnacle of Stanwell's freehand offerings, and evidently they are pretty rare. In fact, we've only ever carried a single other one before, and in his description of it Bear noted (way back in 2006) that that
one was the first he'd ever seen. Fitting to its title, this briar is presented in a big, proudly set bent Dublin design, with flame grain dressing the flanks and a fair bit of natural plateaus crowning the rim.
