I’ve been a huge fan since I bought my first Jesse Jones pipe in late 2014. He’s only gotten better, and better, and better. Here are a few of mine:
I heard the same. Secondhand has some big dollar estates from time to time, I always assumed they were Jesse's handiwork. We met him at the only New Orleans pipe show, he was just across from Ryan Aldens table. A pretty interesting guy. (I think he was working with Smokers Haven at the time? He was active on the Brothers of Briar website when he first started carving and I believe he did estate work to that point. His skill set ramped up fast!Jesse Jones - Good carver. I'd heard that he does restorations for secondhandpipes. First time I've seen his work clearly identified. Nice job!
This board has an unofficial law that all references to a specific pipe, or part of a pipe, must be accompanied by one or more photos. :mrgreen:The Dunhill I just finished is the spitting image of Jesse's( he does a much better job, but I am not entirely dissatisfied ), only with a slightly bent stem.
There is still a little work to be done on the dot, it was totally worn out.
I do not get something about the ferrule : it is not hallmarked as such and does not look like silver .
Ages like sterling silver though , so what is it ?
