With a length of almost six and three quarters inches, and a weight (according to the Iñárritu/Arriaga 2003 cinematic masterpiece) slightly more than that of a human soul (21 Grams), this Walt Cannoy would fairly amaze, even if presented in a shape that stunk on ice. What it offers, however, is a whimsically modernist interpretation of a very popular traditional shape.
If you are looking for the nigh perfect instrument with which to sip a delicate flake or coin tobacco, as opposed to a candidate for a slow-smoking contest, this straight Dublin could be your next stop. The chamber will comfortably hold 1.6-1.8 grams, and it’s easy to visualize the sweet smoke cooling as it travels past the inch and a half of shank and through nearly five inches of stem. Whether held in the traditional manner, or crooked in the index finger, Walt’s 'Suedeblasting' results in a tactile experience that is delightfully unique... something that, much like trying to describe the taste of an orange to someone who has never had one, is damned hard to verbalize, but is fully comprehended the instant that it is actually experienced.
