|This pipe hits all the proper notes as far as I'm concerned. The
pipe has the right, reasonable size for holding in the hand or
the jaw, Grp. 4, with a proper chamber capacity. The pipe also
exhibits fine design, while still adhering to the standards of what
a traditional shape offers...the comfort of a flat, ebonite stem,
a wide-open draw and very good looking proportions. In short,
this pipe maker, who donated this pipe, can make a pipe. BTW,
that fuzzy looking blob at the front of the bowl is not bad camera
work (although it may be that, also) it is simply remarkably tight
Bird's Eye grain in a good sandblast finish. I've never seen that
before. From the maker, it would be $700. New.
5.45" long, bowl 1.6" tall. Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $545.
