    Bought a Briar Bird billiard because it was different from everything else I own. What do you think?

    I like the stem extension and the metal band. I've heard good things about his pipes, and hope to buy one eventually.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Looks wonderful. I really like the acrylic stem and the extension. Nice acquisition.

    Is his stamp on the underside? I don't see it in your pictures.

    That is very nice looking and has some nice grain on it. I hope it is a great smoker for you. Congrats on your new pipe.

    I like it. I's different. With that band, it almost looks art deco like. Very cool.

    I really love extension pieces, exotic woods, metals and mammoth combined a with non-traditional stems. That is a beautiful bowl, I hope it smokes well.

    I like the grain, the thick walls and the wood ferrule. Congratulations!

    That's a great looking pipe and the stem really sets off the grain. Hope it smokes well for you.

    He's great to work with. I have two and love them.

    "The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It's the poor man's friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth."
