    I'd like this type of pipe

    Can you recommend someone to make one or do you know of one already made ?

    Check out the Nording Virgin Grain pipes.

    They're not terribly fancy but that was my first thought if you're looking for plateau on a factory pipe.

    That's a Boswell isn't it? If so, they may take special orders... I wass looking into special orders with them lately - That looks like a $139-$159 Boswell.

    RC Sands may also have one that looks like that at an affordable price...I believe he takes special orders too... he's more affordable than Boswell. $85-$125

    Lastly, Buckeye would do that - though that will cost around $200+

    Boswell puts out 7-12 pipes every wed night/thurs am... here's a link to their pies for sale... there was almost exactly/or the same pipe! up for $159 around xmas. It lasted 2-4 days before someone snagged it. I was the chimney billiard with plateau...

    I don't know if you are a non-aro burley smoker, but if you are, that deep bowl with a proportionately narrow chamber is perfect for burley leaf. I smoke thick and medium cut Semois in my pipes with a similar configuration and it is an excellent pairing. You might say, it's what's needed.

    What's your budget? A custom pipe is going to run you $250+.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    I found another one I really like, but it's out of stock. This is a Luciano. I spent hours online trying to find something similar to the two pictures I posted and found nothing.....

    ^^^ This; that particular style is a pretty frequent offering, but you have to call them to order. They make a nice pipe for the money.

    Good advice so far, shouldn't be hard to find a similar pipe from quite a few makers. You didnt mention your budget, but if you are looking for a low price I'd definitely second RC Sands. Chuck is a really cool old dude, and his pipes smoke great from everything I hear. His prices are quite low, and he will talk your ear off about driving trucks and raising horses, reminds me of my Dad he is a character. I'd call him directly, if his number isnt available online PM me and I'll send it to you.

    I have a Boswell plateau billiard in a lighter stain, a nice smoker but somehow it never seems to get much attention. Actually just cleaned it intending to make a thread over on the sell/trade forum, feel free to PM me for details if you think it's close to what you're looking for.

    If you want to go a little more extreme with the plateau then I'm sure Bruce Weaver would make you something similar to this. This thing smokes like a dream and he is just great to deal with.

    I would ask Clark Layton. I simply love his pipes, the look, the smokey goodness, smooth draw. I have 2 of his currently and another on the way. He can carve anything. Prices are still quite acceptable also.

    Since it is a Boswell pipe just call and have one made, it is a simple process. Now if you want to spend a few bucks grab one of these.

    That Weaver in torque's collection is really stunning. Wonderful blast and I love that craggy rim.

    I think you have all of the contacts and advice that you need, right on track with what you want. But if you are still shopping, Johs makes quite a few freehands with plateau at reasonable prices, and he makes a good pipe. If you are still casting about, take a look at those, at various of our sponsor online retailers among other places.

    weedsnager:

    I have seen pipes manufactured by Randy Wiley that resemble the one shown in the image accompanying your post. In fact, just today I saw a new Wiley Lumberman offered for sale on the Website of a sponsor of pipesmagazine.com, and which I would put in the same league as your dream pipe.

    My recommendation would be to have Todd Bannard ("Sasquatch") make you one. Or Jesse Jones.

    Randy Wiley does custom commissions? I had no idea. I'll have to keep it in mind. How do you get in touch with him?

    Cosmic:

    Allow me to clarify. I did not write that Mr. Wiley accepts orders for custom-made pipes (I do not know if he does), but rather that I had seen pipes produced by him which resemble that which weedsnager is seeking.
