During his long tenure at Dunhill, Les Wood learned a thing or two about oil curing briar and generally creates pipes that are "by the book" of English inspired shaping. Having said that, while this pipe would hardly be considered "wild" by the standards of a Preben Holm... I have never
seen a Ferndown Volcano. This pipe shares some style characteristics with shapes derived from the Pesaro school. The rim is smooth and boasts some decent crossgrain.
