I decided I had one last serious pipe left in me. One dedicated to a certain tobacco. Not a hard build, but complicated by only having one working hand and arm. Here is the start and will be updated as it progresses. Right or wrong. Good or bad.

I picked a horn because I thought it would be very simple. Dumb...dumb...dumb. I now realize why there are so many paneled horns out there. That is where this one might fail big time as I don't intend on paneled.

I love looking at horns. A smooth curved cone is nice to look at, and moreso if you know that there’s no easy way to carve it short of a programmed mill.

I haven’t smoked one, though. Always wondered if they were awkward to hold, and I’m nowhere near a store to try one.
