I recently became the proud owner of two pipes from Christopher Pipes - our own shikano53.
Here's the bent Dublin:




And the Billiard.



Sorry for the poor image quality, just some quick cell phone shots that really don't do these justice.
I've smoked the Dublin today, nice wide draw, midsized deep bowl perfect for the windy weather here, very lightweight, clean smoke.
Tomorrow I'll have the Billiard, which I'd expect to be great too.
I'm so very excited to have these as my first non-estate pipes!

They're lovely pipes and I hope they smoke true and well for you.
Love the montage of flame and birds eye on both pipes.
This forum has proudly supported makers from within it's ranks and shikano53 certainly qualifies.
Do you have a website to share?

As it should be.

Smoked the billiard this morning, lends itself really well to tight cuts of tobacco, nice sized bowl and wide draft keeps enough airflow to maintain embers even with hastily-rubbed rope.

This is good news! Good for you, good for Chris. And the photos are really pretty darn good, as are the pipes. Excellent, in fact.
Thanks for posting, and enjoy!

Here is a picture of a bent volcano I am working on for another forum member.

Rough shaping phase
