    I think stems improve your product. Great!

    I like it! this kind of reminds me of the Nording compass type pipe, but the one you created looks better.

    I've been wanting to find some small briar pieces and make something similar (but not as nice). I often use reed or bamboo to make a churchwarden type thing from a cob. I don't use a bit, just stick a reed in a cob stem essentially. I've had TMJ issues so I try to avoid clenching and a stem without a bit is more comfortable. I'll clamp on a bit every time.

    Sometimes I'll fit a short, smaller reed to the end of the reed to have a more comfortable mouthpiece.

    Effe, I think I'd recognize your pipes anywhere! Very distinctive style.
