    I bought this bulldog last week from Invicta Briars. It was in their "Craftsman's Choice" range and was described as "a little longer than normal with a posh stem". A nice bit of briar with some good grain. A solid bulldog shape. I really like the accent on the stem, which is white with some flecks in it. Drilling is good, with a nice open draw.

    Nice one!
    I'm expecting my Invicta Rhodesian through the post any day now, I ordered it last Tuesday, but Swedish post is notoriously unreliable.

    I've only smoked it once so far but initial impressions were very good. I'll maybe have another bowl in it tonight.

    Mighty nice Bulldog there fella. Super nice grain and a little additional bling on the stem to set off a super sweet traditional pipe shape. I love the Bulldog shape. I love others too but the good ol' Bulldog shape has a special place in my mind. I cannot describe why--it just does--maybe its just me--there is something "gentlemanly" about a Bulldog.
