Almost finished now... it just needs a layer of carnaubawax and a little bit of polish for the mouthpiece.

The first pipe I made has a Butz-Choquin mouthpiece.

But this 2nd pipe is all handmade. From one nice large block of Greek Briar wood and a piece of vulcanite that I got from a very friendly Dutch pipesmoker.

I had this tiny 'Charatan's make deLuxe 56' chimney pipe and wanted something similar but bigger. Hard to find so I started making one myself. Except for a drill and the buffing, no electronic tools were used. Really handmade...

This is the result so far. 74mm high and 16cm in length.

Excellent handiwork 👏👏

I have 2 Charatan Shape 56 and there are subtle differences between them and your 56

I love it! Too big for my tastes, but beautiful!

Have you smoked it yet?
Thank you! And everyone above for the compliments!

No, not yet. I did a little bit of work on the stem and gave the bowl a treatment with an oil-mixture inbetween that had to dry out first.
But will do soon now...

These are two beautyful pipes!

What I have from Charatan is this.

At the bottom a Charatan cutty pipe without the nr., but I think it is a 56 aswell.
A nice old chopped bowl that needs a stem and the odd little chimney.

The bottom pipe with the bent stem is a Shape 56

Charatan can sometimes be a bit slipshod with their stampings
The top of my 2 cuttys (darker stain) has not been stamped with a Shape number either
