After all these years, I'll finally own a real, honest to goodness, hand-made pipe!
Larrysson pipes has one on the bench for me as I type, and I'm really excited. For those who didn't know, he had taken a break for some time, but is back at it.
From what I understand, his website has had a bit of a revamping as well.

I'll of course post some pictures when I have the pipe, but couldn't wait to brag, now that I'll finally have something to brag about!
Who else here has one of his beautiful pieces?

Congrats on your new commission. I am sure it will be awesome. I have been watching his pipes for years and he has always made some great looking pipes for very reasonable prices.

You just had to show a link to his site didn't ya. There are 2 pipes I would buy in a heartbeat if they had vulcanite stems. The first 2 Dublins are awesome. I am going to contact him to see if he will make new stems for them. Damn they are pretty.

Yeah, I am going for something very similar to the first ring-grain Dublin, which I absolutely love.
His blasts are fantastic, and I've heard his stem cutting is perfect.

I emailed him and he already got back to me. He said he can do vulcanite and I am just waiting to hear how much the pipes weigh. He is getting back to me tomorrow morning. I might go for the Ring Grain and the Full Bent dublins if the weights are in my range. They are gorgeous.

I kid of course - I absolutely would buy both of those pipes in a heartbeat. They're right in my wheelhouse as well, and I especially like the black cherry stain.
I hope for your sake the weights are to your liking!

Looked at the website...that tree stump pipe is really nice.

Oh no!

I appreciate the tree pieces for sure, though they're not my cuppa. Just amazed at the versatility going from more classic shapes to those sorts of things and everything in between. Flawless.

That's how you can tell he's the real deal.

Indeed. I searched for a few years before I settled on Bruce Weaver for my commissions. Careful, you may have started a regular thing. :)
