I have a question for those who have commissioned a few pipes in their pipe smoking career. I have a couple shapes of pipes that I like, would really like to have one in that shape in nearly that exact look. What has been your experience with custom carvers like Rad Davis doing commissions based on your exact needs? I don't want to stop the creative process but would love to be able to say I owned the shape and look I wanted AND its a commission for a respected carver. What is the typical time it takes to get one of these pipes done?
