No doubt!!!

It was definitely a beautiful pipe. But, when it comes to CWs, I tend to lean more heavily to the longer ones. And, I have been afraid that with that particular curve, there would be a danger of me accidentally allowing some of the ashes and hot embers to fall out while smoking it.

My new found love for bulldog and Rhodesian styles (especially the 1/4 bent) and the above mentioned concerns made me choose his Rhodesian. I would love to get my hands on one of his "Pipe 026 - Long-Stemmed Rhodesian - SOLD ($80)" pipes; but, with a 6 inch overall length.



I hope he don't mind me posting this picture here. I think it is a beautiful pipe!!!

And, again... his prices are definitely as right as the rain that is finally falling here!!! Wink Wink

Robert,
Bob Davison is very easy to deal with and as you saw on the website, his prices are incredible!
He has made some wonderful pipes for me in the past.
Send him a PM and see what you guys come up with.
Hopefully Bob gets a chance to see this thread. Very Happy

I am in the process of having him make me an eskimo pipe w/ clear stem!
It was more or less finished today. Here are the pics he sent me this morning..........

Dimensions:
Length - 5 3/8
Height - 1 7/16
Bowl ID - 3/4
Bowl OD - 1 13/16
Bowl Depth - 1 1/4

WOW... love that pipe!!!!! Can't wait to hear how it smokes for you!!

I've intended to drop him a line and inquire about a Rhodesian like I mentioned above. But, now you show me this gal!! I'll still contact him. But, now I've got to figure out exactly what I want to contact him about!!! Thanks for the confusion, Dover!!! Rolling Eyes Laughing

Gentlemen,

Thank you muchly for the kind birthday wishes. It was a pretty laid back day... puffed on a couple of pipes... tried to finish fixing up a meer for a co-worker (unfortunately discovered that it has a hole in the bowl about half way down)... and finished up DoverPipe's Eskimo.

The Eskimo was a lot of fun to make as I was trying to imitate the Eltang Eskimo on GL Pease's site. While the end result is no Eltang, I am very pleased with the outcome. I appreciate Dover's trust in asking me to attempt this pipe. The wide, thin shank offered lots of possibilities for disaster, but the briar god's were kind... very few flaw issues (there is one on the bottom).

Thanks for the many compliments about my pipes. It's a fun hobby that (mostly) keeps me out of trouble Very Happy

I'm certainly glad to hear that you had a good birthday, Bob! As most of us age, laid back birthdays are usually something we appreciate more than ones garnished with a bunch of hoopla!! Wink

On DoverPipes' recommendation I have sent you an email about a pipe I have in mind. I look very much forward to hearing back from you!! Very Happy

Robert
