That is a really nice looking pipe, and the craftsmanship is spot on the money. The colors are nice, and work well together. The stummel / shank transition looks nice and flows well. I am normally not one for any type of white stemwork, but what you have going on there works really well. White with a touch of translucence. It makes me think of frosted glass, which is so much better than just a whitish looking stem.

Thanks. I wish the pics showed the stem better. The acrylic I used on this on is a Mother-of-pearl and however they make it, it has some awesome qualities to it. Sometimes it almost looks like steer horn or polished bone or something.

Out of curiosity, Growley, why do you want to change the stem? Is the bit uncomfortable?

No, it's just a bit more thin than I typically like to make them. I don't think it would last the long haul. Even though this isn't a clencher pipe, I'm a clencher...and goodness knows I'll try. That's what strong teeth and neck muscles are for! Very Happy

I plan on making another stem even just for myself. I like things to be as perfect as my skills will let me make them...and this one isn't up to my skill level, so if I don't remake it, it will bug me to death.

Well, if it ever goes unloved and unappreciated by you (or whatever brother "adopts" it), let me know. Thin stem or not. I'm not a clencher, so stem thickness is somewhat irrelevant to the smoke, but applicable to the look--and this one's got the look!

Cool

I remember being in Middle School and the bus driver being somewhat obsessed with that song. I totally ran it in my head for a moment regarding the pipe, and considered posting a YouTube, but there's been some filthy talk of me going off topic at times (...me??!!?? Good heavens!)... Laughing

...and thank goodness it wasn't "Joyride." Cool

No, those were also under consideration, but Roxette is more obscure. *shrug* You fool, GK, age means nothing in regard to music in the Era of the Internet.

I'll split the difference. BOTH songs came to mind.

Typically I don't like the look of white stemmed pipes, but I usually always love apple or brandy shaped pipes.

This white stem does have a unique look, so whatever Kyle offers you Brian, I will double! geek

The pipe is stupendous Growley, damn fine work brother. And I have to admit...no songs came to mind. in that light if the pipe goes unloved maybe it should go to the next generation down from Kyle who has a bit more time to show it the pipe love it deserves for longer. Twisted Evil (Age was probably a bad direction to go, but my lack of music knowledge led me there lol)

I can't...get that pipe....right now, so... Embarassed I kind of feel like a jerk. Between one from Todd Harris and discussion of the BoB pipe in the other thread, there's just too much good stuff around here. We should be so spoiled, eh?
