    Pretty happy with this one- overall pipe is 8" long and a surprisingly light 44 grams due to the morta. Morta tends to be fairly difficult to work with under any circumstances...drilling a 5 7/8"" draft hole through the shank was really challenging (especially with a 6" drill bit). One of those cases where I really wish I had a 12" lathe-

    Gorgeous!!!Is it blasted? I don't think I have ever seen a totally smooth morta pipe.

    I love the shape and proportions of the pipe. Just perfect!!

    Michael, I always blast Morta- love the texture you get with it... I actually sand them out to a 400 grit before blasting and I just don't think they look good smooth.

    That is a gorgeous pipe!! I've always had a hankering for a Morta Canadian but wasn't sure how a long shanked morta pipe would look....not a Canadian but I have a pretty good idea now. Your choice of stem colour is right on the money as well. Well done!!

    That is super nice. Morta always catches my eye. I need to save my pennies and buy a nice morta.

    I tend to prefer the sandblasted look but my favorite Morta pipe I've ever seen is smooth.

    Very very sweet! I guess acorns grow in Canada, too! Does this shape have a name besides the title designation?

    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.

    If I make a couple of more of them, I'll probably give it a name...In the meantime, just "Dublin" is close enough...:)

    Oh, extra nice, and good and light weight. I like that long, lithe look.

    Sweet pipe!

    Like a Dublin lumberman almost.

    That long shank is beautiful,
    as is the blast.

    I love the subtle upswept curve of the rim too.

    Very well done!

    WOW! Well done! Everything about that pipe works together. Love the shape, love the way the grain of the morta flows and the I love way stems material matches perfectly!
