Figured I better post this over here in the proper forum. I feel good about this pipe. I spent a lot of time filing to get it right. Not without it's flaws, but a good effort on my part. Hard to get good pics on the iPhone, especially in the sunlight.

Thanks! You can see where I shaped the pipe with my files and sandpaper so the stem doesn't look perfectly straight. But it's not bent either. Really looked good that way to me.

Pretty clever Carlos, nice work, the bowl transition is perfect too.

The shank shape and the "shoulder" you gave it at the transition point to the bowl is excellent, excellent. I usually find billiards kind of a bore, but that one is subtle class, through-and-through. Cool

I have to agree wholeheartedly with Kyle, you "nailed" it with your transition at that point with that shape of shank. Razz Razz And it's a "real" size of pipe, not one of these monstrous "Artisan" sizes we see so much these days ! A DAMN FINE PIECE OF WORK cheers cheers cheers

carlos... if you get a chance, you should post a shot of the pipe from the top view. it has a really nice wide flat shank that those pics don't seem to capture. your work paid off big time, great pipe!

Nice job Carlos! The shank reminds me of a shortened version of a Savinelli #812, one of my favorite shapes, but I like your version better.
