I'm so used to seeing the "Collection" stamping and finish accompanying quite large briars that I was admittedly rather surprised to find this slender, sinuous beauty awaiting. Though I suppose it's actually about on par in scale with Dunhill Group 3 or even 4, the design has such a light and graceful aesthetic to its lines and proportions that I didn't even realize this until I picked it up. That's not to say, understand, that any kind of heft gave it away - whether in hand or clenched in the jaw, this pipe's feel is just as light as its looks. Really it was more of matter of looking down at the chamber and realizing just how much of it there was tucked away in there.
