Despite their wonderful choice of grains, it is Costello's craggy Sea Rock finish that catches my heart's attention--as it does that of my fingers. There is just something exciting about the finish that lends something extra to shapes like this bent Dublin. The Dublin rim is nice and broad, with a wide flare, and a single divot changing the shape of the rim. The shank is a very flat oval and bends gently. This is an altogether fine pipe.
