One thing about these massive giant pipes from Ardor is their weight. Considering all the tobacco you can pack into the chasm they call a chamber, you're going to be holding this pipe for a long, long time. Well, with this Giant Oom Paul, it's flattened heel makes it a very stable sitter, fortunately enough. The large, barrel-shaped bowl has a rustication with a grind-like pattern. A wide, polished rim shows of a rather impressive cross-grain.
