Apparently a wild rim of plateau wasn't enough for this dashing bent Dublin shape, to Kevin Arthur's eye. So he went ahead and covered the rest of the briar in an extra-craggy rustication. And good for him I say. The resulting texture is crazy crisp, and plenty enjoyable in hand. Speaking of which, it's surprising just how light this thing is, weighing little more than a Stanwell Featherweight. Despite the modest bend, it should prove an easy pipe to keep clenched as well.
