Everything except an answer to oxblooding on pipes! Lol
I assume you're referring to the pics @Chasing Embers posted above. I agree the red one doesn't at all look like briar, but the brown one kinda does. It at least gives an idea of what is possible...I don't think I've ever seen one quite like that before.Doesnt look like Briar to me.
The red one reminded me of those grainless Christmas pipes from Peterson last year.
