Here's something we haven't seen a whole lot of: a Radice Rind bent Brandy with an Underwood finished rim... I can't say it's common, but I can say it pairs wonderfully with this briar's extra-plump bowl and dark rustication- providing a pleasingly natural feel in hand. Plenty of bend to the shank and stem make for an easy hang from the jaw as well despite its vast chasm of chamber. A masculine composition great for an all-day smoke.
