Notes
This briar has a couple of pin-size imperfections that most people would need a magnifying glass to see. And there was one small inclusion at the very bottom of the mortise that does not effect the fit of the stem or the function of the pipe in any way. Otherwise, briar just doesn't get much better than this. And it rarely cooperates like this one did, resulting in such an even, radial grain pattern along the sides of this pipe. All in all, this is one of the nicest pieces of briar I believe I have had the pleasure of working with.
