Well, this is part of an interesting two-pipe update from Yuki. At under four inches in length and weighing in at nine-tenths of an ounce, what we're looking at here is the larger
of the pair. I don't expect there'll be any debate as to whether this shape qualifies as a proper Nosewarmer, as it could hardly get any more shorter and pugnacious in proportions. Stocky as briar and mount may be, the stem is very finely tapered, producing a neat, thin bit. Charming in style, light as a feather, and a sure sitter to boot, Yuki's done a proper job making a beautiful and practical rendition of one of the more extreme classic shapes.
