Golden Duke Zulu

Fixed this up for a friend. It's so pretty I had to post it. The grain is outstanding.

Nice looking Golden Duke Dave!  One of my favorite shapes ! Some of the best grained Grabows I have seen were Golden Dukes.

Does anyone know the grading for the Duke line? Golden is the highest grade?

I tried writing some cheat-sheets for this stuff. Here goes:

Golden dukes--Westbrooks and Starfires were selected as:

Grade--#1 or #2
(on a 1-8 scale (1= near perfect briar, 2=up to 3 black spots))

Grain-- E, F or A
E(#2) & A(#1) = 100% grained, F(#2) = 75%

So, it's almost perfect with lots of grain, but you knew that already. Laughing

Only Emperors and Eldorados are higher grade. Viscounts are up there too.

Great looking GD , nice smooth examples of them are about as nice as you can get. Great work shinning it up.

I'm still looking for a couple GD examples.

Troy, that new GIF is awesome. Kinda looks like my night after work. (Except PJ's instead of a suit.)

Very nice clean up sir. I agree the Golden's are beautiful pipes. I have a couple with awesome grain, including one very similar to that one.
