Johs called us and said "I have hit a perfect piece of briar". This is not that rare but the rare thing is that it is a BIG piece of briar. Super fine straight grain and the signature stain from Johs, which is a fresh brown/orange colour. Its a giant full bent Oom Paul sitter shape with acrylic inlay and amber coloured acrylic stem. Note the detail with virgin base. This is an amazing pipe!
