This pipe is almost an Oom Paul and as such among the rarest of
Ser Jacopo shapes.
To have it in a Gem Series piece, like this Emerald Maxima, is
obviously hardly ever seen.
As discussed previously, classic bowls like this are difficult
to find with
straight grain. The briar grows in a way which yields a grain
pattern contrary to
the shape of pipes like this one. However...every once in a while
...and this is one of those rarities.
A very large classic bent with super grain throughout.
It is also mounted with an 18k Gold band.
