Those are beautiful pipes. I echo the comments on the cobra. PAD is a real thing. I find I am quickly succumbing to the disease.

Congratulations - I had the Cobra in my basket, but you beat me to the punch. I hope it smokes great for you!

Update with more pics and for @didiit did happen!

The cobra is an exquisite monster:

Not only am I impressed by the size, I'm amazed by the use of the grain. It starts from a point facing you:

And radiates in a circle both directions towards the opposite side:

Finishing with a seem of natural plateau:

The shank has symmetrical lines down opposite sides of the shank that follow through to the stem in flawless transition:

I give it a thumbs uo:

The chamber is cavernous and my thumb can't reach the bottom!
