There really is no mistaking a Porsche Design pipe, is there? Whether the shape is the conservative '907', or the windswept, ultra-modernist '909' now before you, it will feature deep, concentric bevels to increase the surface area of the bowl, the better to dissipate heat. I must confess, right up to this moment, I had never encountered a '909' in briar, only in the titanium. Seeing it executed in the noble heath, especially a block with a grain as fine as this one, finds my love/hate meter swinging quite a bit more to the friendly side.
