    I haven't photographed any of mine, but here's a link to one that I commissioned from Tony Fillenwarth.

    The link is kinda flaky. If you copy and paste the whole thing it will take you to the page.

    That's a beautiful pipe, Sable. I might try my hand at making one of these some time. They look like a real good bit of fun to carve.

    Thank you. Tony makes a fine wax drip pipe. I've commissioned two from him. It's a lot of work and done well requires time, patience, and real skills. It's too bad Tony doesn't make them unless properly bribed. Larryson also makes really nice wax drips.

    Wax drip pipes have absolutely zero appeal to me. Although I would have said that about both the bulldog shape and craggy rustications up until about two years ago, and now I prefer them. Probably means I'll develop an obsession with wax drip pipes in a couple months.

    jesse, cool looking pipe. Does the wax drip add a lot of weight or is it minimal?

    Wow! That Larrysson is a work of art. Its a sculpture that just happens to be shaped like a pipe. I know pipes should be smoked because that is its intended purpose, but I'm not sure I could smoke that or even find a tobacco worthy enough to be burned in that!

    Fish has more wax drips than I have pipes, but damn they're beautiful!

    I do like that one, but if I had to choose one to steal from banjo it would be the Russ Cook. That thing looks magnificent! Always making us drool banjo, keep it up! You Sir, are an inspiration!

    @sable - absolutely beautiful. I love the contrasting colors. Looks like some caramel boiled over...I like the color of the stem too.

    @fish - wonderful collection of wax drips. That Larrysson is amazing.

    Enjoyable thread. Let's see some more.

    My only drip wax, a Castello Pi Billiard. One of, if not, my favorite go to pipes.

    Harris,
    The heaviest of my Drip Wax Pipes would be the Larrysson since it has more Briar due to the coverage Paul does, here is a photo of it on my US Potal Scale.

    pianopuffer, just a Pi series Castello is quite the find but as a Drip Wax that’s practically Nirvana! Thanks for sharing.

    Paul from Larrysson Pipes, Chris Askwith and Russ Cook all accommodated me with my predilection of keeping my pipe capacity at Group 4 and under, the Walt Cannoy was a stock group 3 I purchased new from Walt, all the others are estate pipes so there was nothing I could do, they are what they are.

    carolinachurchwarden et Alia. Russ Cook sent me many photos of the stages my pipe from him underwent from block to finish, if that sounds like an interesting post with photos I’d be happy to share, regards.
