French Estates: Butz-Choquin Virginia Smooth Oom Paul (Geante) (1352)
Product Number: 004-003-0996
Smoking this pipe should be refereed with the rules of soccer: no using your hands. Gravity, it seems, is put on hold when this piece is in jaw, since there is little to no fatigue from holding it in your teeth. The shape's also effortlessly beautiful, creating a wonderful balance of lines and proportion between the tall, deep-chambered bowl, and high-reaching, languidly-curved stem. And even though this stem is on a full-bent pipe, the grain doesn't looked warped at all, as with a lot of the type; with plenty of forward-moving flame grain on the left flank.
