Have seen references for years, and more recently after reading an article by Dan Locklair in the NASPC newsletter and listening to an old episode from Brian Levine's podcast, decided to pull the trigger and add a Julius Vesz 'Raindrop' to the collection. I appreciate the history and craftsmanship associated with Mr. Vesz, so was very excited. Came yesterday and am looking forward to its initial smoke.

That's a unique design, eye-catching. Does the chamber open out below the narrow brim? If so, it looks like it would hold a world of blend. I think that's rustication, not blast, done with a discerning hand.

No. It is a more narrow chamber, probably in the area of a group 4. Perfect size for me.
