I much prefer sandblasted pipes to rusticated ones, but blast it, in this hobby there are always so many beloved exceptions.

First, Sasieni rustication. Never fails to be interesting, mostly to the eye rather than the touch, but doggone, what an eyeful. I've heard that one carver made these pipe surfaces. The most interesting and mind blowing of rustication, according to me. Called "Rustic," I never fail to devour online pictures of Sasienis like this one, a one dot:

Second, Castello Sea Rock. Wonderful for the fingers. The bulges are soft, blunt, yet delicate to the touch. You can feel there's a lot of surface across the pipe, but the whole of it feels smooth when you absent-mindedly run the thumb pad across it while reading. Looks so much rougher and gruffer than it is. Looks so good you secretly want to believe its pose of being organic and not the decisions of a rusticator/carver.

Third, Ferndown Bark. Even surface prickly. Rough but without pattern or variation between spots on the pipe. No pointy mountains peeking out or depressed smoother dried up lake beds--all one great even topography. Beautiful shine in the light as the tiny depressions reflect so many tiny dot points of light. The opposite of crude, perhaps the most refined and elegant of "rustication."

Further, this post concludes my effort to try the image hosting mechanism of the site.

Yeah, seriously. What the heck is that thing? I also prefer a sandblast over rustication, but those are all at the top of the art. Two others I favor are Savinelli Capri, which reminds me of elephant hide, and the older version of Jobey Stromboli, which looks like a vaguely pipe-shaped moon rock.

What do you guys think it is, besides the greatest pipe photo mock up holder known to man or woman?

George, you're right. I image searched that Jobey pattern and you're so right--out of this world.

I think it's representative of a totem made with drawers. I see eyes, nose, mouth and strong chin... of course I could be wrong. Laughing

As far as I can tell it's a dresser top container for cuff links, tie tacks, pocket watch and chain, for a man who decorates in log cabin style. For the pictures I've just stacked it on top of shoe box humidors and an ashtray or whatever's been handy.

It's very expressive for a log. Close the bottom drawer and it looks like it smokes self satisfied.

Open the drawer and it looks grumpy. My own personal Monbla in wood.

Looks better with a bent pipe. Too bad I prefer straight ones.

Yeah. The old ones especially, with their craggy rims. I've got a few of those I found in a meteor crater. Razz It's like there's light rustication, heavy rustication, and then Stromboli rustication. Looks weird, but it kinda grows on you.

I Love Castello Sea Rock rustication, they're incredible. I also really love Jacono's rustications and Larrysson's tree bark style as well. As far as blasts go I love Karl Erik, Kevin Arthur, Skovgaard and Rad Davis.

Cool log! Very Happy
