It does resemble one of Scottie's pipes!It is gorgeous. Reminds me of some of those works of art Scottie Piersel makes.
It looks like a Billiard curvet with a pencil shank. Unfortunately, by 1962 this shape was no longer in the line up so I don't have a reference for this model number.Did Barling give a name to that shape?
No way to know, other than it's a great sandblast. Even with the amount of wear, such that the red under stain has become fairly prominent (new these were black with the red under stain coming through as the pipe aged and the black top stain wore down) the blast remains nice and craggy.That blast resembles a Shell Briar. Is that by method or density of a given block?
