Hey guys, today in the mail I got what I have been waiting very long for, my first commissioned pipe. A few months back I started a thread about where to get a commission done and how much they cost, after a while Roth set me up with Todd Harris the one who carved his morta pipe, and today my pipe got here, so here it is

A Bing Crosby inspired billiard, so far this thing smokes like a dream.

That is a beauty of a billiard. Stunning!
Peck- I sure hope you're not having a stroke! Lol. Pic shows fine for me. You took me a liitle getting used to here, I won't lie. Rubbed me the wrong way a few times early on, but now I don't know what it would be like without some of your comments here, and of course the banter between you and Harris. You're a value to this community, that honestly I allowed myself to be blinded to at first.

Breaking in with Carter Hall and Peck I have no idea why you can't see it I tried it with different browsers like IE, Chrome and Firefox, but I can still see it on all of them.

Ah . . . now I see it. That was weird, kept refreshing and saw nothing. That is a beauty. Gorgeous grain. I have heard (and seen) great things from this carver - does he have a website?
Thanks pipebow. I rubbed my wife the wrong way when I first met her as well. Actually, I still do.

Can't beat a straight billiard for a flagship pipe. So much presence and dignity. Great grain. Perfect lines.

That's an elegant pipe.
I know that morta is very popular amongst collectors but I'd love to know the strengths vs. weaknesses when compared to briar.
Congratulations, Ron.

Dang, gotta have flash player to pull that up. I access only through my phone. So I can't look.
