Lofty in style, this Mastro de Paja doesn't settle just for having a tall bowl, it goes further and perches it high up a smooth, sinuous transition, as if to hammer home the point. It's kind of like taking a girl who is 5'9"-plus and sticking her in stiletto heels. And I'm fine with that. And I'm fine with this pipe - it's a pleasing shape to the eye, and all that extra height does all the finer a job of letting the flame grain stretch out.
