I am not a great fan of bents, as everybody looking at my pipes would be able to tell, but every now and then I decide to take the plunge and try my hand at one. This, as you can see, is one of those rare occasions. And wow, did it take me for a surprise! Beautiful flamegrain on the sides, and then, to top it all, stunning birdseye on the bottom, running through the shank to the stem! The shape fits the palm of my hand as if been molded especially for me. It is going to be very difficult to let go of this baby!
