Although this pipe is light for its size, and has a very comfortable stem for clenching, the contour of the back of the bowl is absolutely perfect for the smoker's thumb. While I tend to prefer to hang a pipe in my jaw, I can't argue with more options. The light stain displays a nice freckling of birdseye at the heel, and fiery flame grain most everywhere else. My favorite feature of the "Silver Line" is the substantial silver band at the shank which has a hammered pattern on top.
