We often see Pokers as big, heavy things, pipes made to be best smoked while you plan on staying in one place for quite some time. The L'Anatra rendition however is a lighter, trimmer take. It sits solid as a rock, but wouldn't have any trouble tucking into a jacket pocket either. The chamber is more compact, of course, but plenty broad, the sort I find works especially well with richer blends like the Frog Morton offerings.
