Ardor: Meteora Chubby Volcano with Silver

Product Number: 002-004-1790

Short and stout the proportions presented here may be, but despite technically falling into the "nosewarmer" style, I doubt this briar was intended for easy clenching. Put simply, it's just too massive. No, this is more the sort of pipe meant for kicking back with in a big, comfortable chair during the evening, when you'll have plenty of time to spend cradling it in hand and enjoying a more leisurely smoke, reassured by its solid shaping and considerable heft. (Granted, I've seen photos of guys clenching even Ardor's Giants, so I guess there are those out there to whom a pipe like this would qualify as a lighter number after all.) Finish-wise, while the Meteora carving provides plenty of texture across most of the briar's surface, the smooth polished underside does a fine job of presenting a lovely cross-grain.
