Looking at this pipe, especially when in hand, it is easy to over look that it's bent. Even when sitting on the desk, this Foursquare almost looks straight with a canted bowl. Nevertheless, closer inspection reveals the shank is bent... or angled might be more appropriate considered the square shank and sharp lines. The paneled bowl is softened a bit by the curved corners and rounded heel. Finished in the simple honey blonde Champagne series stain, this pipe proves that it's hip to be square.
