Nosewarmer brevity, buddha bamboo stockiness, a compact Egg's pleasing roundness: this would be a great formula for a very charming, very handy briar. In theory. Also, in reality, evidently, since that is just what Michail created here, and just how, too. There are artisanal pipes smokers acquire, and then reserve for the special, occasional smoke — said pipes spending the rest of their time largely resting on display. And then there are the ones at the other end of the spectrum, that will wind up being carried around all over the place, as constant companions. This Kyriazanos definitely strikes me as a briar destined to become the latter sort.
