For whatever reason, the Canadian just doesn't cropped up in paneled renditions anywhere nearly as often as its Billiard or Brandy siblings. Or even Apples, for that matter. In fact, checking our archives, in L'Anatra's case it's been about eight years and almost nine-hundred pipes since we last saw a Canadian with panels. As if to make up for that long absence, this one gets the full octagonal treatment - and, oh, yes, just happens to have been fashioned from a piece of briar with fantastic ring grain.
