    Is that the one we discussed? Big-a$$ bowl & over 8 inches long, IIRC. Good to see you enjoying it

    You need your own thread, "Bradly Pipe of the Day, Bring Tissues (You Will Drool)" or "Estate Pipes Preview". Once again, nice pipe!

    To that young man who has 400$ to spend, look around , 132$ at Neat pipes, James Upshall , you can get some pretty good pipes if you do your homework, Roth I retorted it and it was super clean, smokeing some Carter Hall as I had done a light ream. The old cajun

    Great! And Six, I don't believe this Upshall is a "classic canadian" -- more a canadian on steroids!

    "classic canadian"

    I guess that's true - but that rusticated finish takes me to the Canadian woods for sure. Love it.

    This Canadian loves that Canadian owned by the Cajun. Say that three times fast.

    I am no expert on British pipes, but I don't recall ever seeing a rusticated Upshall. Will have to pay more attention.

    Bradley, that is sure enough one beautiful pipe mate. I have some very nice pipes, but, the more you show of yours, the more inferior I feel. hahahhah, enjoy.

    If at first you don't succeed, have another bowl.

    Upshall calls their sandblast a "Bark" finish, like Ferndown.

    I'm always searching for a line called "Countryman", but they are super rare (one on Ebay last year).

    Bradley, I am glad to hear it is smoking great. I had no doubts it wouldn't. I like your picture better than the one from their site. it is a looker. I also don't remember seeing a rusticated Upshall. Both of mine are blasted. If anyone is looking to get a classic British pipe for not a lot of money, Upshalls represent one of the best values on the estate market. Every Upshall I have owned has been a very good smoker, and I have owned more than half a dozen. When you think about it, if that pipe was a Dunhill, it would have been around 300.00 or more. I would match the smoking properties of an Upshall against any Dunhill. Another thing to consider is that Upshalls are an artisan pipe as Barry Jones does all the carving from what I have read.

    Hey Bradley - am I allowed to ask where you picked it up or is that verboten?
