I swear, it feels like I must have somehow handed Shane Ireland my bucket list of pipes, cause this year I’ve seen a number that I’ve been looking for quite some time to get. This new one is no exception. Since I saw Scottie’s pencil shank pipes I’ve wanted one and now that I’m collecting American carvers I feel a pencil shank Scottie is a must for this collection. I really like the stain on this one paired with the white stem. The craggy plateau like rim seemed like a playful addition to a very classic shape. With the chamber dimensions I think I’ll get a lot of good bowls of some of my favorite Va flakes out of it. Can’t wait to get it and have a break in bowl.
