With its craggy plateaued rim and plethora of flame grain and birdseye, it's no wonder that this bent Dublin earned Ser Jacopo's "Gem" grade. The shaping is bold, yet delicate with the broad, plateaued rim tapering down into a well rounded heel and thick shank. As a Maxima, an extra-deep, wide chamber promises a long and enjoyable smoking experience. Finished in a warm contrast stain and topped with an extra-large Delecta sterling silver mount, it's a classy, masculine composition. In unsmoked condition, it comes in its original presentation box and leather pouch.
