Saving? You got a credit card dontcha? Twisted Evil


Yes I do, but I also have a wife - who wouldn't see the benefit in a transaction like this. I think it's a great deal, but to keep the peace I have to convince her of that - especially with the holidays coming up. santa

Spoken like a married man who wants to stay married... excellent.

The twins have arrived!

My BOB POYs arrived in the post yesterday, and I thought the Brothers like to see 'em. They are both stout pipes, with real weight. The horn ferrule has subtle differences between the two.The nomenclature is the name of the design (B&T or Coral) the date in mall script, and BOB FORUM below. I'll break each in over the coming days, likely with a favorite tobak such as H&H Magnum Opus, or Esoterica Penzance.

It's a good thing we have until the end of the year to order them - it's gonna take me that long to figure out which I want more. I'm not sure I want to set aside the funds for both, and as I've nearly doubled my pipe collection in the last year (and have one commission waiting in the wings) I'm not sure how much more PAD the missus is going to tolerate.

At first, I was all about the B&T; then I really started eyeballing the coral. Now, seeing them side by side, I almost just want to flip a coin!

Nice Kevin, nice. You got both versions, something I was agonizing about as I liked them both but the B&T won out.

Looking at the B&T you got, it appears the shank is smooth where mine is rusticated like the original version-



Did you request this? Just curious, as it looks good but is not the same as mine. Ya, I'm a nosy bassard....

Razz

And it appears you may have gotten the original Coral since no one else has chimed in.

This Tinsky is my very first and probably won't be my last either. Great pick-ups bro.


Cheers,

RR

I have to admit, the smooth shank makes that pipe so much sexier. The rusticated was nice, but the smooth is sexy. It's like comparing Ann-Margret and Sophia Loren.

When Mark makes a B&T he usually rusticates where the briar tells him to, and divides up the rusticated and smooth portions to showcase the briar best. The individual B&T pieces in a specific shape are often quite different. You got a couple of great lookers there Smile

Brewdude-
No, I did not request anything special from Mark Tinsky. My only comms with Mark was his acknowledgement of my initial order, and the estimate for delivery time, which was spot on.

I'm quite pleased with them both. The photos don't do justiice to the 'presence' these pipes have. They definately make a statement.

Ah, I see now. Thanks for the clarification PD.

I think I'll wait til next month;
estimated taxes are due Monday. Mad
Actually, I could pay late, due to Isaac,
but I still have to pay, so why put it off.

I just weighed mine on my small digital eletronic scale and it was 85.0 gm (about 3.0 oz.). It has not only a 'presence' it has some heft! Feels great in the hand, smokes like a champ. A real winner all the way around.

I'm afraid this one might be a bit too large for my tastes. Doesn't sound like a clencher.

There's that evil voice inside your head saying those bad things.

Saw Mark's pipes at the West Coast Pipe Show last weekend and met the man himself and, I have to say, I was really blown away by his work! Mark is a really nice guy and, he's super prolific to boot! He had his table filled with pipes! I really liked the Black & Tans and the Naked Corals. Really nice work. Really nice guy. Might have to get one of these...

Love my B&T so much that I just might have to spring for the Coral next. Or another one of Marks pipes. Lots of good 'uns to choose from on his site!
