Pretty happy with this one- overall pipe is 8" long and a surprisingly light 44 grams due to the morta. Morta tends to be fairly difficult to work with under any circumstances...drilling a 5 7/8"" draft hole through the shank was really challenging (especially with a 6" drill bit). One of those cases where I really wish I had a 12" lathe-

Gorgeous!!!Is it blasted? I don't think I have ever seen a totally smooth morta pipe.
I love the shape and proportions of the pipe. Just perfect!!

Michael, I always blast Morta- love the texture you get with it... I actually sand them out to a 400 grit before blasting and I just don't think they look good smooth.

That is a gorgeous pipe!! I've always had a hankering for a Morta Canadian but wasn't sure how a long shanked morta pipe would look....not a Canadian but I have a pretty good idea now. Your choice of stem colour is right on the money as well. Well done!! :clap:

That is super nice. Morta always catches my eye. I need to save my pennies and buy a nice morta.
I tend to prefer the sandblasted look but my favorite Morta pipe I've ever seen is smooth.

Does this shape have a name besides the title designation?
If I make a couple of more of them, I'll probably give it a name...In the meantime, just "Dublin" is close enough...:)

Oh, extra nice, and good and light weight. I like that long, lithe look.

Sweet pipe!
Like a Dublin lumberman almost.
That long shank is beautiful,

as is the blast.
I love the subtle upswept curve of the rim too.
Very well done!

:clap:

WOW! Well done! Everything about that pipe works together. Love the shape, love the way the grain of the morta flows and the I love way stems material matches perfectly!

I would add something, but the other guys exhausted all the words!

Great work!
