Ser Jacopo: Sandlbasted Bent Apple (S2)
Product Number: 002-171-1844
Though not sporting the sort of long, arching shank typically found on such briars, this design is one that nonetheless benefits from Ser Jacopo's continuous-curve drafthole drilling. Granted, it could
have been done with a straight drill from shank-face to bowl, however, using their special bits allows both for the drafthole to meet the chamber at a more obtuse angle, keeping the briar above their junction thicker, as well as making for a neater arrangement of drafthole and mortise on the other end of things. Altogether, this makes for a better-built briar, and one that will pass a pipe-cleaner with considerably more ease - showing that the artisans at Ser Jacopo are willing to take such extra steps, even when they aren't entirely necessary.
