This is a classic shape, from the Danish perspective. That is to say, while a smooth and lively, high-rimmed Dublin design like this might stand out on a Dunhill shape chart, it would have looked right at home amongst the Stanwells or Kriswills of the 1960s. And though that tall bowl does offer up quite a lot of chamber, the modest length of this briar leaves it easy to tuck into a jacket pocket. This particular example also happens to bear some nice birdseye on either flank.
