Yep, lumberman.

"The Lumberman is yet another part of the Canadian family of pipes, a sub-style of the Billiard shape. What differentiates the Lumberman from other pipes in the Canadian family is that the Lumberman has an oval shank with an oval saddle stem."

That may have been true at one time, but I submit there are many Canadians with their bowls and shanks out of whack these days.
Not the pipe's fault nor the definition. Too many makers are cutting corners. Too many sellers try to trade on nomenclature that is wrong.

I was attempting humor with a double entendre.

I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

For some reason those long-shanked pipes in the Canadian family always bring the word "stately" to mind. I have several, and they always have a pleasing traditional look about them.
