    So recently I was reading a thread where someone mentioned Rick Black pipes. Having the natural curiosity of a pipe hound, I had to check out his work. I discovered that I liked the masculine features of Rick's pipes, the dimensions and his interpretations of standard shapes. Within about 48 hours, I pulled the trigger and ordered a Morta, thick Rhodesian with skull embedded band and a blue stem. It got here yesterday and I'm attempting to upload my own pics of the pipe.

    Hmmm. I guess I need to do a little more homework; it appears this particular forum software doesn't like a Google Pics link. Or I'm just really bad at this...Option B most likely.

    Though I don't own one, I hear great things. His mortas are some beautiful pieces. Glad I'm not the only one that got bit by the pipe bug this week.

    My 1st New Briar Pipe was from Rick in July 2014. He makes wonderful smokers.

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    Heh...the worst news for me is that I'm going to the St. Louis Pipe Show. My wife is going with me, so there's an outside chance I'll come back with enough money to pay bills.

    Chris - NICE. I really love his designs and he's more affordable that I would have thought.
