David Wagner has studied with a few pipemakers in a few countries over the years. That list includes Franz von Matt in Switzerland, Josef Prammer in Austria, and Rainer Barbi in Germany. The result is a style all his own. We see his artistry in this stout, squat Pot. Compact in proportions, it's a sturdy sitter with a thick-walled chamber, presented in a dark sandblasted finish that displays this briar's nice ring grain.
