    Got an amazing surprise in the mail today, and have found my Fall pipe for dedicating Deep Hollow to! Thanks Bruce!

    That's a beautiful pipe, there embers. Gotta say, I love the grain on that beauty. Love the acorn shape too. Enjoy the hell out of it when that day comes.

    That grain in a dazzler, and acorn is an under-appreciated shape. That's quite a treatment over all.

    That’s a very handsome pipe Duane, I especially like the cross grain going over the top of the shank. Congrats!

    Terrific! Love the way the grain is contrasted.

    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.

    It looked like it. It's a fantastic looking pipe. The more I come back to this post, the more I like it! Love that long shank. Couldn't imagine what it would take to drill that.

    Thats a smexy pipe !!

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    That new one is very impressive...as are the whole group. I especially like the second from the right in the top row.

    Ah, the Christmas commission. A couple of funny threads behind that one.

    I now have two yet unsmoked Weavers.
    The longest I have gone like that with a single one was seven months. May see if I can do it again....with both!

    The last two he gave me were leftovers from his site that didn't sell, and he wanted them to go to a good home. No clue why they didn't sell, but I'm extremely happy with them!

    I'm late to the game, but those pipes are just gorgeous,

    Nice collection of pipes! Very impressive.

    Thanks guys! They've been the top of my favorites list.
