    Al Jones (aka ssjones) was kind enough to put his skills to cleaning up a Ferndown pipe I bought last 2 weeks ago. The pipe looks great, smokes like a dream and feels good in my hand. I don't know what shape to call it so if anyone knows please chime in.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    That's a smart looking pipe! I'd call it a stubby prince, maybe?

    I think it's an author variation. Too squat for an apple and not tapered enough for a prince. But I think I may be a shape contrarian.

    Nice pipe! I still can't get over the fact that Ferndown will be no more

    Beautiful pipe. I like a lot.

    I agree with the apple denomination.
    I own a Castello 23 wich looks very similar and they call it an apple.

    Cheers,

    J

    Got almost the same one John, different silver work and stem, but same shape, hangs good and is a very good smoker.

    I'd call her a true tomato, and a tasty one at that.
