This is a massive handful of natural, unstained briar. And when I say "massive", I don't just mean "big". This towering straight Billiard has some heft to it. It's a pleasing heft, however - and it's not like a design like this is meant to be a pocket pipe anyway. No, this one's clearly going entirely in the other direction: a "house pipe"; extra-large and extra-capacious, for enjoying those particularly indulgent smokes when you finally have the time, and no need to be anywhere else for quite a while.
