    I always love participating in the Kansas City Carving competition- pipemakers tend to have certain styles they like to make and this forces you out of that comfort zone...The good news is that every year, I see some improvement in what I make, the bad news is that the competition gets much better every year...So, maybe next year...

    This is the one I sent- Buddha Bamboo with an Ooosic accent and some of the most interesting SEM stem material I've seen...thought it came out rather nice....

    Unique piece for sure. Does it sit?

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Beautiful work! There's so much to look at here, and the whole composition is so tastefully done.
    High points for creativity and execution on this gem!

    Does it sit

    Just barely...and not on the foot- too much weight on the shank...

    Thanks! That was a great piece of briar...and that stem material was a limited production from SEM...down to my last couple of pieces- wish I had more of it...
