"It's good to be the king!"
-Mel Brooks from Robin Hood Men in tights.
Mel Brooks films have so many one-liners, they are hard to forget. What can I say? If a block of briar destined to be a Stanwell shape has excellent grain, and is hand shaped, it's a King. This reminds me very much of Winslow Crown pipes, partly because the shape is lovely and the grain is wonderful. Unsmoked and ready to rule your domain.
