Despite the lofty-sounding name, Royal Coachman is actually a sub-brand of Chapuis-Comoy, a.k.a. Chacom. As is often the case with such briars, this one sports some very evident fills. Nonetheless, I do have to say I really like the shape, with its smooth, soft lines, long, fine taper to the shank, and slim saddle bit.
