Hey guys,

I was messing around with a variation of the Eskidesian, and came up with this. It's not for sale because she's not ready for the "real world" yet, but I wanted to get your opinions.

What do you think of this shape?
And does anyone have a better name for it?

WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME Shocked Shocked Shocked Once again you've re=defined the buldog genre !!!! Being on a fixed income makes it hard to look at your gems of the pipe makers art!! Razz Why don't you just call it a Growley? Razz

Brian, I saw my friend Kevin here in Reno with one of your Eskidesians, and I have to say, it's a short pipe! While he loves it, and we both love the shape, this is a great variation. Now, if I were to demand you make one of these for me, all proportions aside, a "stretched" model with a little more briar and a little thicker stem getting to the 6" mark...that'd be more my style.

In a nutshell, you're on the right track. cheers "Eskidesian," is a great name.

Cool

Brian, I would name it the "Pen," which is the name for a female swan. Another winner for sure! cheers cheers cheers

It looks awesome brother. Kind of like a spoon if you chop off the top portion of the bowl, but that is just me being weird. Dang good looking pipe.
