Well, it may not be a "Giant", but it's certainly no featherweight either. This is one big, shapely briar indeed. That having been said, I couldn't help but notice that while there's a good and pleasing heft to it, the shape still feels lightly balanced in hand - courtesy, of course, of the full-bent design keeping its center of gravity, well, close to its center. Extra-stout of wall, softly rounded, and definitely capacious, this would make a fine pipe for relaxing with during a (very) long evening smoke.
