If I was forced to sum up the design of this Jacono Rhodisean using only one word, it would be "robust". This pipe fills the hand with both ease and comfort. The pairing of the bowl to the Author-esque transition and shank, flat-out works. It is no surprise, considering the source of the briar and the skill of the artisan, that the tight flame grain coaxed out of this block follows the lines of the pipe fluently.
