    I figured it was appropriate to wind up the year with another Author...one of my favorite combinations- B&W Cumberland with an Ooosic accent ring. This one is one of the few I've done with a 1" tobacco chamber- 4.75" long, 1.31" deep and 65 grams...

    A beauty for sure!

    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.

    Great proportions! I love the chunky look of it, and the stem looks spot on.

    Love the stem grain orientation and button work!

    That's one of my favorite combination of Cumberland- SEM Germany cals it a B&W Cumberland...I've also pretty much settled on that button design- like to keep it nice and open on the slot- surprisingly doesn't take long for the extra shaping.

    Nice author there! It's a pot, with that 1 inch chamber. Bet it does well with complex mixtures.

    That pipe is a beast! Between the blast and the shape its a very deadly looking pipe. Well done Zack!

    It's a big boy author !! Lovely !!

    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.

    Very well executed.

    The blast looks awesome, the tease of grain that comes through on the smooth rim is a vey elegant detail, the button on the bottom of the bowl goes a long way in distinguishing this pipe, the speckling on the ring joins the beautiful acrylic stem to the shank.

    A true work of art and an excellent example of a very fine pipe indeed.

    That wide bowl looks primed for a nice all-morning smoke with cup of coffee and a sunrise.
