Imagine there was a Foursquare. You know, the paneled Billiard type. Now imagine that instead of a paneled Billiard there was a paneled Dublin. Now imagine that paneled Dublin had aspirations of becoming a Bulldog and was sort of along on its way in getting there. That's this pipe. Is it pretty? Eye of the beholder and all that, but it's certainly made of Algerian briar, the kind of briar coveted above all for its sweetly sublime smoking qualities. The kind of briar that pretty much disappeared from pipe production about 40+ years ago. So while this pipe may aspire to a whole new never-before-seen kind of shape in all likelihood it's already a mastered smoking instrument.
