When we asked about how this one ended out as it is Tom answered "It was in the wood". With more than 40 years of experience one learn to read the block of briar. Not many does this better than Tom. This is an outstanding hybrid shape. Its a some what semi chimney tulip meets the Danish Dublin. Awesome grain, fine light brown smooth finish, mammoth ring and hand cut saddle stem.
This one is a snail grade which means its a top pipe from Tom.
