While the Radices typically do produce pipes with generous proportions in one direction or another - very tall, very wide, or just overall very full-bodied - they seem to make sure this is even more so when it comes to their morta pipes. Of the three we've seen previously, there's been an absurdly tall Stack, and two very hearty neoclassical designs. And, now, there's another example of the latter, in the form of this massive morta straight Apple, a big and hearty design indeed. Fitting to the shaping and material combination, they've accented it with cocobolo, a dark hardwood well-known for its extreme density.
