I never have cared for the fine line rustication. But I think it really looks good on that pipe. Very nice looking pipe!

It's a good looker. I like a stubby style poker so I won't pose any competition in the bidding

You might warm up to this one if you had one. I have always liked the looks of pokers, but I prefer a "trim" and not chunky one. The bowls are somewhat narrow as a rule for my tastes, so I really have to like one to actually pay money for it..

I definitely like it, the overall length is just a bit much for me for a poker. They look awkward to my eye at a 6" length

The one I am smoking now is 5 and 7/8 in. long. It is definitely almost all of 6 in. If it does not have the eye appeal, you need to look elsewhere for Grabow happiness.
