    Just got this today thanks to a vague listing, crossed Barlings on the stem no shape number. kind of does what it says on the tin grain wise.

    I love it. Simple lines, interesting grain with an understated elegance. A true gentleman's pipe. Congrats and enjoy.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Congrats on the find.

    Sable's going to lose his mind. That's gorgeous. Barling always has been a stellar name for classic shapes & elegance. I picked up a nice bent egg Barling the other day. Haven't taken any pics yet, but will PDQ!

    Jesse lost his mind a long time ago. Fortunately for all concerned, he can find it at will.....

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    True.

    Owen, that's a splendid example of a Guinea Grain and it looks to be in equally splendid shape. The profile is elegant. S-M is the perfect size for a modest smoke. Congrats on a nice addition to your menagerie.

    Thank you. I must confess I didn't find the Barling's saddle stem very comfortable but this pipe is indeed very graceful with a great button.

    Saddle bits look fabulous on some pipes, Lovats, for example. But on your basic billiard/lumberman? No, just can't see it. It's weird what a big difference a mere 1.75-2" can make.
