Boisterous and full-bodied, this shapely Rhodesian is a very different animal than its close cousin, the classical, masculine Bulldog, yet still carries itself with a similarly bold style. Nonetheless, I would still place it, from a practical standpoint, firmly in "comfort pipe" territory. It's feel in hand is full and rounded, as well as pleasingly textured, while stout walls will provide a gentle warmth, and its generous chamber a long, easy smoke.
As a bonus, while supplies last, we're tossing in a free broad-bladed plug-cutter (we just happened to have a batch of them on hand) with each Ser Jacopo pipe that comes up on a new update.
