Great looking pipes guys. Keep up the good work buying Jack's pipes. The more we buy the cheaper he can keep his prices.
Well, I don’t know when he last sold the Brindle Bulldog for $295, it’s what the website shows, but he said they are now $325.
I really like the Ring pattern on this Oval Dublin.
5 1/2" long, 2" tall, 7/8" bore and just over 1 5/8" stroke. 51g. Natural horn floc, handcut vulcanite stem. First, the blast. Man, I was THIS close to finishing this one smooth. Glad I didn't. My sandblast rig has been cutting well for a while but really caught this one on the screws. Next...
I asked to get a similar pattern on the Brindle Bulldog, he said he can’t make it like that, explaining how each pipe is hand done, etc., which of course I understand how another pipe isn’t going to be 100% identical.
Jose Rubio as an example makes ring patterns on many of his pipes all very similar, which is his Signature Look, so I’m not sure why Mr. Howell won’t replicate a pattern like this.
I’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out, I just hope I can get a nice similar ring pattern.
