|François Dal – Handmade 2018 – (on stem) δ|
In the family of forms associated with poker, there is one less common: the Duke shape popularized by Dunhill Brand. It has in common with Poker, Cherrywood and Don: a shaft-shaped stummel, canted or not, but the Duke is distinguished by the absence of shank in briar. This shank is here replaced by a metal connector on which just plug the stem. The advantage of the shape is a reduced weight compared to the presence of wood but also the fact that with the weight located on the front, the pipe will never rock once seated. This model shows a really impressive ring grain sanding, both in depth and regularity. A real pleasure to work! The shank is drilled at 4.2mm. The slot of the mouthpiece is well open in V for an optimal draw. The briar, of Tuscan origin, benefited at least from a year (I guess much more) and a half of drying and 1 more year in my own reserve.
