This is a neat little shape, variations on which we've seen from a variety of pipe makers recently (Peter Heeschen, Brad Pohlmann, someone else I'm forgetting). I'm quite taken with it, especially as an Ardor given what a departure it is for them (not least of all in terms of size). The super-thin shank, paired with the flaring poker bowl is just delightful. The palette choices are great too, with the light variegated tan acrylic stem and the smooth tan rim capping the dark rustication in between.
