RhodesianThis is another pipe group that causes a good deal of controversy. There are those who feel that any bent Bulldog is a rhodesian. Others believe that any round- shanked Bulldog is a rhodesian. the prevailling opinion seems to favor rhodesians as round- shanked and Bulldog as diamond- shanked, regardless of whether bent or straight. Pipe makers will continue to use their own interpretations, but for our purposes, this is the standard.
