French Estates: Ben Wade Smooth Calabash (Unsmoked) (with Box)

Product Number: 004-003-1074

There are fills, and the bead-lines appear to have been carved by someone with a bad case of the jitters, but I have to say the shape of this Ben Wade is quite interesting. Whimsically sinuous, nice in hand, and very deep-chambered aren't a bad combination. Curiously, the drilling was clearly done with tooling that could bore the hole along a curve, something only a few artisanal workshops possess today.
