It has been a long time since we have seen one of these big boys from Dublin. And even three years ago, we had only seen a couple "House" series giants. These pipes might be not be as bulky as other marques' extra-large briars, but it is definitely not fitting in a pocket; even a roomy jacket pocket would be strained to hold it comfortably. This one is meant to sit at home on your desk or coffee table, showing off its lively grain and sterling silver band and waiting for you to fill its chasm of a chamber and enjoy a long, long smoke.
