I love the look and feel of a sandblasted pipe. Because the blasting brings out the grain in a very different way than a smooth pipe, each one has a very unique appearance. If you're like me, you'll find that there's a good case to be made to pick up a Crown Manola Sandblast pipe.
These Italian briars have a craggy sandblasted finish, topped off with a glossy black topcoat. They run in the average size range and feel great in the hand. The look and feel may catch your attention, but what will seal the deal is the price. You can buy two or three Crown Manola Sandblast pipes for the price of one similar pipe.
Note: Some models are unfiltered while others will take a 9mm filter and come with an adapter to allow them to be used without a filter. The 9mm models are noted in the name of the pipe below.
