The introduction of a series from an overseas pipe maker doesn't just mean getting to see a finish and accent combination we may not have seen before. It sometimes also means we'll be getting to see a shape that previously only rarely made it over to the US. Such is the case with Trio and the "185" shape, a curvaceous bent Apple that also happens to be one of Stanwell's largest designs. Out of the nearly 8,000 Stanwells we've carried new, the "185" has only before appeared about fifty times, meaning it's represented about 0.006% of the Stanwells we've ever offered.
