Like long smokes? Like ring grain? Here the Radices offer both; a tall and lively take on the bent Billiard, covered in sandblasted rings from heel to plateau crown. Though hardly a small pipe, this briar proves light and hand, and with a balance that should still allow for an easy enough clench - no doubt due to the pretty lean proportions, and just how much of the bowl is taken up by the chamber.
