Misc. Estates: Grechukhin Smooth Rhodesian (2012)

Product Number: 004-008-2224

This is a piece similar to only one other I've yet seen from Russian pipe maker Grechukhin. Ordinarily I'm less a fan of the Rhodesian, which this is, favoring instead the Bulldog. After all, most of the time your Rhodesian is simply a Bulldog in structure minus the diamond shaped shank. A good looking Bulldog needs all those extra lines. But Grechukhin has done something different here by paneling the sides of the shank; it muscles up with definition the physique of the pipe nicely. Also, the double beading is angled down in such a way that the cap feels powerfully front heavy. In fact, considering the size and proportion of the bowl itself, the whole composition reads rather forward, stalwart and energetic. It's softer than a Bulldog, the way a Rhodesian should be, if you ask me.
