I am typically not a fan of the Horn shape; finding pipes with an extreme forward-cant to be difficult to actually smoke (and that is the point, isn't it?). This bent Horn from MeerQueen is as smoke-able as it is alluring. The chamber is deep enough for the flavors of a ribbon-cut blend to really develop, and narrow enough for a bit of folded and stuffed flake. The rusticated finish actually resembles the texture of a light sandblast and being carved from block meerschaum, this piece is as light as a feather.
