It is not uncommon for a PS Studio design to captivate me. The tendency towards compact, robust compositions and modest pricing, is hard to ignore. This muscular bent Apple has me feeling as giddy as a schoolgirl. Round, flowing and impressively grained, the bowl is an absolute dream in the hand and the stem work is remarkable. Under the watchful eye of Vladimir Grechukhin, we can expect top-notch fit and finish and precise engineering. If you'll allow me to speak frankly for a moment, I can't understand how a handmade briar this nice, can only be $250.
