    Here is another of my favorite carver's pipes. It's a smooth Rhodesian. Ryan doesn't make many smooths and this is a tad outside my wheelhouse, but I've been super busy and I rewarded myself for working my ass off.

    The pipe come in just a hair under 5" and weighs a hair under 50 grams. It has beautiful with contrast stained grain and a nice Cumberland stem.

    It smokes great and just has a fantastic feel. I'm very please SmokingPipes had it still.

    Har! That be truly a beautiful pipe. I would reckon t' call it a rhodesian horn. It has elements o' both packed wonderfully into one. Thar be lovely grain on that one, 'n I love th' birdseye on th' rim. Great stem too! I love it, me bucko! Enjoy th' heck out o' it, matey.

    Very nice acquisition. One curved perfectly tapered line. I can see why it feels great in the hand.

    I'm not mad on Cumberland stems but that pipe is a corker...stunning grain on the crown.

    Regards,
