Radice: Clear Rhodesian (E)
Product Number: 002-030-3337
Some pipes are best suited to simply being gripped, some to crooking between ring finger, index finger, and thumb, and some are best enjoyed by simply turning the palm upward, and holding them cradled — both to enjoy the extra contact with the mellow warmth of a thick-walled briar, and because they're so exceedingly wide that holding them any other way isn't necessarily a default position. This Radice Rhodesian, in case you hadn't guessed, is perhaps case of the latter-most. At more than two inches across, rounded and polished along the underside, and featuring a shank and stem combination that tapers away to the lip button, it's a shape that says "cradle me", though I doubt it would complain regardless of how you choose to hold it.- Chuck Stanion
