Jarl Chieftan Smooth Billiard (8124) (B)

Product Number: 004-001-6076

The nomenclature of this briar is something of a head-scratcher. "Jarl Chieftain" (sic)? A "jarl" was a Scandinavian lord of sorts - its etymology is related to the English title "earl", and originally meant, well, "chieftain". So this is a "Chieftain Chieftain", I suppose. The shank also reads "Oil Hardened". Was it stuck in a furnace and then quench-hardened in mineral oil? It doesn't look like it's ever been above 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit to me, so your guess is as good as mine as to what the implications are meant to be there. Regardless, it is a simple, deep-chambered Danish number, one with a rather deep bowl and lively profile.
