    I finally found another of Brian's pieces for a price I thought was more than fair. I love my first pipe from him so I have been on the hunt for a while. Many I have seen were either too big or too expensive, but this one is neither. It is a large group 4 and has been well taken care of. I am psyched to finally acquire another one of his pieces.

    Stunning taste as always Harris. You are building quite a cache of fine pipes. I don't know what I want more - the key to your pipe cabinet or the key to your tobacco cellar.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the nice comments. It does seem that I am getting a lot of pipes with cumberland stems lately, I just love that look. To my eye it gives the pipe a classy kind of look.

    I looked real hard at that one Harris and was secretly hoping it was still there when I visit Peter in a few weeks. I think you will be pleased with the size of that one - sort of between 4-5, but with a pretty big bowl. I'm glad you got it, and thought that you wouldn't be able to pass that up.

    Quarter bent? Check. Sandblasted? Check. Double check. Natural finish stain? Check. Hand cut cumberland stem? Check. Feels great in the hand? Check.

    OK, that's perfect. You did great Harris. You can send it on over to me.

    Another beautiful pipe! I've found that sometimes the hunt is better than the prize and you find something you didn't expect. In this case, you came away with both.

    Al, thanks so much for passing on it, I love the look of this one. I am glad to hear it is a 4-5 in bowl size,I thought it was a regular 4, sounds perfect.

    roth, shoot me your address, would you like a few pounds of tobacco with it?

    mthanded, so true. I have been scouring my usual places for pipes for months and coming up blank. I then get a pm from Al saying he knows a guy who is selling off his collection. If Al had not messaged me, I would not have known about this guy. Ya never know where a pipe may come from and the wait was certainly worth it.

    That is a keeper for sure! Nothing wrong with another outstanding Cumberland stemmed specimen added to the rotation.

    Very nice Harris

    The most important things in life are good friends and a good bullpen...not necessarily in that order

    I Just heard of Ruthenberg for the first time today. I saw another of his pipes for sale, and I really like the look. He does great blasts, with a good choice of stain. The cumberland stems are killer too.

    Missed this post. Harris, you have excellent taste my friend. That is an incredible looking pipe.

    Love the three S's stain, sandblast and stem . I have yet to acquire a cumberland stem, but that is on my next to get list - congrats!

    Thanks Six and Gary for the nice comments. The pipe just came in and I immediately loaded it up with Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired. The pipe is performing brilliantly as I expected. It is smoking cool and dry and the tobacco tastes great. Brian is a great carver and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an artisan pipe. It is interesting, if I close my eyes I could not tell the difference between my Rad Davis stems and Brian's, both are super comfortable and the button design seems identical.
