Group 1 pipes aren't exactly a common find; I'd wager I've seen two or three Group 6 briars for every "1". Nonetheless, there are certain shapes that find their way down in these dainty proportions quite a bit more frequently than others, and the "06" straight Pot is one of them. And why not? If you're going to make a pipe light as a feather and shorter than many tampers, you would want to make sure there's still some decent breadth of chamber - and the Pot's just the shape for that.
