The Rhodesian is quite a potent shape classification; if a pipe sports a rounded shank, the simple addition of a Mark of the Rhodesian (i.e. double bead-line) results in inevitable assimilation. In this Julius Vesz, for example, we find a classic straight Apple for which resistance has, indeed, proven futile. It's a Rhodesian now - a nice, trim, handy, and rather efficiently-formed one.
