    What a neat little pipe! I can't tell from the pics, but it appears to be fairly small, yet it looks as if it has quite a large chamber. I like the square shank/stem as well.

    Thanks Petes03. It is a neat one with the square shank/stem and being a sitter. The size is medium-ish to me but you're right the chamber is HUGE! This is one of the few that needed and took the largest reaming head on my Castleford set.

    Pat, it's my pleasure. I learned everything I know from reading and experimenting, both with pipes and leather, so it's only natural to try to give back as much as I can.

    I have to read the Reborn piece Greg, and always enjoy your articles. When I find some time, I have to write up two restorations myself.
