This Radice is, quite frankly, massive. It is a broad, towering, lengthy concoction created from one big block of briar, no small amount of antler, and a fair bit of black acrylic as well. And yet, I have to say, it proves plenty easy in hand, the curving heel and (relatively) tall and narrow proportions making for a natural fit, even in my not-particularly-large mitts. On a less surprising note, it also of course contains enough chamber to outdo two or three, or four, pipes of lesser stature.
