    An interesting combination- my first time on this particular finish and color- A stacked bulldog with Cumberland and an Ooosic accent ring...came in at 5 1/8" and 55 grams...

    Ha! Must be nice to be able to test your threads first. Coulda used that trick myself a few weeks ago...
    Still an awesome pipe.

    Gorgeous! Looks like a primo smoker too. But what a treatment with that intricately patterned stem, the multi-textured briar, and the band and accent bead line. That's one heart throb of a tobacco pipe. I can feel the jetstream of buyers headed your way. Ooh-la-la.

    Don't worry, Captain. It wasn't doing anything but getting him into trouble, anyway! Besides, looks nicer on the pipe than it did on him, I'll bet.

    Zack, that's an eye catcher for sure. The color you chose makes the pipe stand out from others, especially with the Cumberland stem. So, when are you going to smoke it?

    KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

    The first thing my wife Greta said is "That's beautiful- when are you going to sell it?" I tend to end up smoking my rejects...:(

    Oosic (Fossilized Walrus Penile Bone) is a great material- very pricey- I paid about $60 for 5"...and every time I cut a slice for a pipe, it destroys the band saw blade...

    That is a damn fine pipe Zack. Surprised Harris hasn't grabbed that one.

    Sounds like I need to get him over to the house for ribs and get him liquored up...:)

    That is one bee-yoo-te-ful pipe! I love bull dogs and that on is a stunner!
    The contrast is awesome!
    Fantastic job Zack!

    Great work! I love the finish and color

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Wow that's perdy. The stem is a perfect complement as well. Well done, sir.

    Zack,
    Perfect Cumberland stem & Oosic ring accents. Outstanding blast, tastefully understated.

    So, this is a Blasted Tall Bulldog with a Boner Pipe? (I bet he's proud of himself)

    Yeah, Harris would buy it...he needs all the help he can get.

    That's a stunner. Well done! The smooth sections of the stummel are a perfect match for the cumberland.

    I am not a fan of the bulldog shape. This one is superb and has swayed my opinion. Well done.

    Pipes like this are the root cause of PAD. You should be utterly ashamed of yourself for leading us into temptation. Like we need more pipes!

    This is absolutely what I am always looking for to add to my collection of Bulldogs. I love "interpretations" of the bully design that pushes the double cone, diamond shank into different, more artistic, directions. It sort of loses the double cone, but the bead suggests that there is one. I love this.

    How did I miss this thread?? (I saw the pipe on Facebook). Who-wee, look at that button!
    I love the contrast stain on the bead ring and bowl top, super-distinctive and fits the Cumberland stem.
    I see Cosmic grabbed this one. I can definitely see the Danish influence.
    Bravo!

    Absolutely stunning. The smooth accents against the blast finish are striking and the Cumberland stem compliments everything.

    I've seen Zak's amazing talent grow in the last 2 years.
    The composition of this presentation is wonderful. All the parts combine in harmony and tone, right down to the distinctive contrasting and all important nomenclature/signature.
    A true piece of pipe art, from button to rim, and one that any of us would be proud to have.
    If a pipe can enhance the enjoyment of a smoke by its appearance, this one is an easy choice.
