The bent Rhodesian arrived today after being ordered on Wednesday. If that is not swift service I do not know what is. Just smoked half-a bowl of Skiff in the thing and it seems pretty darned good. Passes a cleaner, all the holes seem dead on. Cosmetically there are no fills, but there is an unfilled pit in an otherwise nicely grained briar. This is of very little concern to me as I suspect this baby will get into all kinds of scrapes in the future: she is destined for many a long walk and much poking in and out of pockets. Fits in my hand perfectly, and has a decent heft, but none to much that she cannot be well clenched. £35 well spent, I think.
