A Lovat became tied with a Dublin (in its various forms) as my favorite pipe shape sometime last summer, I think with a Davide Iafisco I picked up. Prior to that, my all-time favorite, hands down? The Prince, which still holds a special place in my heart (and pipe racks!). The lack of its ability to hold a lot of tobacco made it slip down the charts. But there's no question, it's gracefully gorgeous.
