It should surprise no one that a "Hercules" Foursquare would make for a hefty and remarkably solid-feeling pipe. Perhaps less expected would be how pleasing it is to hold one. Both the softened edges of the bowl's panels, and the harder ones found on the shank readily tempt a smoker's thumb to constant fidgeting, and the pipe's overall size gives it a fullness in the hand. Additionally, and although maybe not designed specifically for it, this design tends to sit quite well.
