    I love a good sturdy Charatan, and now I have one with a great blast.

    Great blast indeed..nice piece of wood.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Yup, that's a winner! I even like it more because it's a pot shape!

    The Charatan Relief sandblasts I think generally smoke better than the smooths. That's just my opinion, anyway. Sorry.
    Interestingly, they only blasted the bowls, and rusticated the shanks to "match" the bowl. If you have several examples, you'll see what i mean...

    I love these craggy blasts. In the 1950s early 60s, Reubin Charatan used to tell Jonny Mahoney, before he packed the bowls up to be sent to the glass works to be sand-blasted "don't forget to write a note saying 'heavy on the bowls and light on the shanks' and put it in the box"
