Okay, here they are. I tried to get them all comfortably in one photo but......
They are as follows left to right. LHS Certified, Missouri Meerschaum, Cavalier(fr), Caminetto, Unbranded, GBD, (another) LHS Certified, Mauro Armellini, TV, WDC w/ horn stem, Unbranded (vulcanite w/removable bowl), Bellezia, Weber, and another Cavalier French made. Looks like I'm going to have to polish some of the stems up again, they've been sitting up on the wall for a couple years now.

You make me really want to get a cavalier, or make another for myself I suppose. Some of those are stunning and have given me some ideas on my next cav design. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you guys!
I too am not a wealthy man and got a lot of these on the cheap. I don't think I paid anymore then $50 for any of them and most where under $30 if memory serves me right. Although about 80% of them needed a lot of work to restore them I'm happy with the way they turned out.

Thank you, but it is not for sale.

We are doing a carve and trade over at the Pipe Makers Forum and this year we all decided to make Cavaliers.

Nice job, Todd. cheers Your "stone" rustication is really coming into its own. The white really gives it some grab and ties it all together. Between Ocelot's and this one, I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't consider a Cav as a possibility for a future pipe to get one day. They're just odd and cool lookin'.

Cool

Back on the subject of the cap at the bottom, it looks like this beautiful pipe you've made, Ocelot, really shouldn't have the cap removed while the pipe is warm or being smoked (over time the joint will loosen, as stems separated from shanks do when the pipe is hot). It makes me wonder if the cap could be tooled to be army mounted, thus avoiding the problem.

I think this post of mine really reveals my ignorance though, and lack of experience with cavaliers (I've never smoked one myself) as I see it looks like Cartaphilus's enviable collection has plenty of caps that work the same way. Maybe the cap region doesn't get warm enough to invoke the warning about separating a stem from a shank, maybe the collected moisture is only released after the smoke is finished and the pipe cooled.

I've handled a Dunhill cavalier and the vulcanite cap screwed into the vulcanite body/housing, so in theory the two materials would hold the same temperature perhaps. Also the cap had what looked like an absorbant plug of cotton in the center of it, which looked like the size/shape of a filter for roll-your-own cigarettes.

It is a beautiful pipe for sure, and now I want one of my own.
