    Well I obviously haven’t finished smoking the oldest Calabash I posted earlier but will finish it and this, the newest Calabash I own. Where the original was made in the classic guise of a Calabash this one takes it to heights nobody, except messers Danovic and Altinok have collaborated to bring it to life.

    The business end, or Meerschaum cup, was made by Pipemaker Sinan Altinok who intricately carved the beautiful pattern it sports. Davorin Denovic was responsible for the gourd end, which he made from very Black Morta, around 10,000 y/o, the accent is a brass band followed by some faux Amber and the stem is a modern Smoky Amber reproduction. Keeping it smokey with more of the 2002 Virginia no. 1 from Mac Baren.

    Yes, for up-market pipes in primo smoking condition, I think fish' must have the Forums record, which is saying a lot with some of the members here. Someone else might get the numbers with boxes of used pipes in lots, but not the top notch artisanal and exotic other pipes.

    Banjo, in a collection of beautiful pipes, that pipe stands out as a stunner.

    That is truly in a class all by itself...just an incredible creation.
