Very beautiful Nielsen, congratulations, Chris! Thereīs an inlay on the stem isnīt it? Is that boxwood? I like the way it looks handmade. Among the Bjarne Nielsen pipes Iīve seen so far, this is one of the nicest.
It would be interesting to know wich carver could have been fabricating this piece, are there Nielsen experts around here?

Kind regards
Thilo

I'm no expert, but I've read that "Phil" Viggen of W.O. Larsen may have made some of the Bjarne Nielsen pipes.

My first thought was, that this could be Mr. Vigens work. But Iīm for sure not an expert too.

Great pipe, Chris! Although, I wouldn't expect any less from you! I'm literally head over heels for the shape of that piece... Very fine Nielsen. cheers

Woof.

I need a sweet bulldog. My Pete 80s got me in the game, but you got dogs of a different breed there!

Thank you gentlemen!
I'm a little nutty about the bulldogs, and I appreciate the feedback.
Thanks again!
Chris.

Harlock my good fellow, you don't just have a thing for bulldogs...you have a thing for fantastic bulldogs.

There isn't a single pipe in this thread that I haven't been impressed by, which is saying alot for bulldogs in particular. It's a shape that can easily go wrong to my tastes, but every one of these is most definitely right.

It seems you've a good hand with the camera and eye for color and scenery too. Very nice photos.

Do please leave a couple of nice doggies for the rest of us bud, will ya? lol! cheers

I'm with Frost. Why should you have all the super sweet bulldogs? lol!

All kidding aside, this thread has given me a dangerous case of dog envy... deep breath...lock up wallet...protect me from myself!!!

I saw this one and it has your name all over it, Chris Twisted Evil

Thanks man!
I can't help myself though, they're just too fun to hold and smoke!
And thanks for the compliment on the photography, I really appreciate it.
My secret is...to take hundreds of photos until I get a couple decent ones!

Ha!
That one's been on my watch list for a few months now!
I look at it occasionally, and the price holds me back...nice one though.

Yeah, was scanning for dogs on the bay after reading this thread. Thought the same, when I came across this one!

Didn't say anything was wrong with the Pete..it's in my regular rotation, as are all the pipes I own. But there's hardly a comparison, aesthetically, with some of Chris' pipes, no?

The great thing about Bulldogs is that just like our canine friends, they come in almost every imaginable shape, style and size. I don't think I can think of another shape that has inspired as much variation and interpretation. From classic English, like the above Ferndown, to stylized Danish dogs and stout Irish and Italian pups, it's hard to get bored by this style, not to mention Rhodesians...

And that Ferndown is a nice one, congrats!

I find common bulldog pipes to be somewhat of a bore. That squat Ferndown and the one originally listed has me chinscratchy about if I, too, need to have at least one. I can tell they likely smoke like a dream, they're designed well.

Very cool Ferndown. How large is that piece? I don't own a Ferndown yet... Might have to keep an eye out for a nice doggie like that one

Wow, you guys really aren't helping me here. Seems like all I've been looking at lately is bulldogs, and these are some beautiful examples. Looks like I may have to break out the ol' debit card. Harlock, you've got some great pipes and the Ferndown is very nice as well.

Thank you!
I find this "shape" very intriguing, as it is so open for interpretation. It's also hard to stop at just one...

P.S. Hey deepbass9, I really like that Yakslon! I came very close to buying one just like it from Yuriy. I hope his health improves, especially since people are starting to find out about him. You can always say that you've been smoking Yak since way back!
