Admittedly, I love this pipe. As a fan of Jeff Gracik's work, I'm biased for sure, however, if you simply love the look and feel of a perfectly balanced, expertly proportioned, sporty and rather Danish looking Dublin (or Horn, as an argument might be made), you're going to love this pipe regardless. But it helps to know that this is a J. Alan pipe; the degree of detail that Jeff puts into every aspect of his pipe making (from drilling to shaping to finish) is at least uncanny and perhaps unrivaled by other American pipe makers. And the horn mount here is just divine.
