The Featherweight series has been a huge hit since its release a couple of years ago. Initially, just eight of the twelve Featherweight shapes were brought into the US, but we loved the series so much that we asked Stanwell to make us batches of the other four shapes. So, this '199' shape, with its lovely brass ring and hexagonally paneled shank, is not normally available in the United States, except from Smokingpipes.com, that is. The grain is very good, with just strikingly good straight grain on the left side and front of the bowl and more mixed flame grain on the right side.
