I'll smoke this one around the shop. Had a pretty big pit in the bowl. I put a pre-carb in it. We'll see how long it lasts. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks nice. What's a "pre-carb"?

You know, that disgusting stuff that Peterson puts in their bowls to make them black. Laughing

Just a thin layer of carbon to facilitate cake building. I'm perfecting a flavour neutral recipe. Some folks prefer a pre carbonated bowl so I figured that if I plan on going any bigger with this pipe making thing I'd better have the option.

Looks amazing, I love the squared shank and stem, looks the business, a good old dose of that pipe-mud should remedy the pit inside the bow. Wink

I think that's the nicest pipe you've shown so far!
I don't know that Dunhill or Ashton could do any better.
Very cool.

great reject. i think the natural flaws in a reject gives a lot of character. the squared shape gives a really great touch.

I love the rustic look of that one, Ocelot!

You can send me your reject pipes anytime, Brother. Cool

Nice one. Panel pipe with a square shank? cheers I dig it.

Meh, it may last for a long time. If the flaw starts to burn in a bit, pipe mud does work wonders. One of my mortas had a soft spot that I shored up with some mud, and the tobacco chamber walls are parallel and functional as they should be. No worries. Very Happy

Cool

pits... crevaces... ignore them.. great shop pipe... seems i made one today also.. all was going well until i ran into a pit that went and went and went.. then another showed up... so it's sitting on my bandsaw right now (my pipe holder place for pieces I'm working)

you did a really awesome job on the shape of this one.. you should definately do it again on another piece of brair.. the mouthpiece could be somewhat thinner from the bit back, but I like it

If you put that in the photo gallery and didn't say who made it I'd have guessed ashton. Very Classical and just all around beautiful. Your making them like an old pro Ocelot. Very Happy Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I did enjoy carving this shape quite a bit. I anticipate myself revisiting this shape in the future. Hopefully the next time it won't be a reject and I can offer to sell it to one of my Brothers.

In other news, I'm working on a website. Expect to see something up and running in the next few months.

I keep coming back to this topic. Is that a sandblast or a rustication? I presume a rustication and am curious how you did it. Unless you don't want to spill one of your secrets though (g)..

That's a blasted finish. You can see the grain as that's what a sandblasted finish does, it exposes the grain pattern in 3-d so to speak. Rustication is a CARVED finish which is done by a drill, bur or knife and does not usually relate to the grain pattern of the briar. I'll pick a blasted pipe over a rusticated pipe if given the choice as I think they look SO MUCH BETTER Razz

I've seen some pretty awful rustication, and there's a few rustication techniques that I like a lot, but a blast is always nice, even when it isn't the best. Very Happy This one is choice.

Can't wait to see the website, O.

A sandblast was my original thought. But I know it takes more time and skill than scratching around with a dremel (g). I did not realize that you're abilities of a pipemaker have reached that level. AND I'm not trying to insult you or be sarcastic!!! I follow several threads about pipe making, with new folk and experienced folk, and I sometimes lose who is which. Thanks for the reply!

Jeez, if I have to do research before commenting in a topic, I think that should be against the BoB rules of order (GRIN) .
Anyway, my comments stand even given under a case of half-zeimers!
