L1 natural Dublin with briar mounted stem. Day in and day out, the classic shapes are the most interesting, and most revealing about the pipe maker. An old pipe making friend of ours once said that he, "could teach a monkey to make a freehand...but a billiard...that takes talent." If the billiard aggravates pipe makers, then Dublins usually delight them. The "V" shape of the bowl follows the natural growth pattern of briar, so most of the straight grains one sees are some sort of Dublin. Since Ser Jacopo makes each piece by hand, they often turn straight grains in billiard, apple, bulldog, etc., as well as the usual Dublin.
