    One of my favorites is this Paul Tatum volcano.

    Another is this Lee Von Erck panel.

    Jesse, that Erck is so craggy it looks like one might cut their hand. I love it.

    Stefano Santambrogio, I love this little nose warmer with a fairly large bowl. He does some awesome blasts.

    Here's another nice sandblast, either pre-war or WW2 era Barling. Very few of these around.

    This is quickly turning into my all-time favorite thread! I do love an angel hair straight grain, but I’ll take an extra craggy blast first, every time.

    I’m loving these pipes fellas. My PAD is overboard now.

    This doesn’t have the greatest grain pattern but it’s such a fantastic shape. Blasted, squat, and tapered, rarely show up all together on a GBD.

    Here’s one that’s near and dear to me. This belonged to my grandfather. One of the few I can actually remember seeing him smoke. He had this one going during the gift passing and unwrapping on a Christmas Eve. I must have been 8 or 10 then.

    That's a keeper Dave! And a nice blast on that Tapestry, we don't often see that. Someone chose that wisely! Who gave him the pipe, do you remember how it was chosen, purchased?

    Loving this blasted thread!

    I believe the Stefano Santambrogio in the earlier part of this thread is rusticated, not a blast. But a fantastic rustication job at that!

    Here’s a Shellmoor bulldog I found in the mailbox courtesy of Joeman. Thanks again buddy! I love the super craggy blast.

    And another Shellmoor I fixed up a while back.

    Something I’ve never seen on a Jobey before. It’s a pushstem stamped English Para.

    That one is from when Weber was making pipes for the Jobey brand. Mid/late 60s to early 80s. Weber did some of the best blast work in the industry in my opinion.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!

    It’s a pushstem stamped English Para.

    Signifies a higher grade of Vulcanite used for the stem, in this case, Para Rubber.
