Gorgeous pipes. Love the classic shapes.
What Mr. Guss said. When Jesse and Rick called me over to their table to look at some pipes, I was immediately mesmerized when I saw them. As fine as the photos on this thread are, they still don't quite capture the beauty of the pieces in person. Ken Barnes can whittle pretty good. (-:I was at the Vegas show, and lucky enough to see the pipes that Jesse and Rick had brought in person. Amazing as the photos are, they don't do justice to the grain or craftsmanship of the pipe. They were all gorgeous.-jguss
I agree timt, I want to make classic orthodox English shapes with the fullest grain.Gorgeous pipes. Love the classic shapes
Well I must say that you've earned all the complements, Ken. I love those shapes too, especially Apples and I'm discovering that I have developed a fondness for the Lovat shape. After carving my first a couple of months ago I can see how the briar dictates the shape. I had one plan, the briar had another entirely different plan for me altogether. Keep up the good work and maybe some day, I'll own a Ken Barnes pipe!I must say that all your comments on this thread certainly inspire me still further. Thank you very much!
