That pipe seems to be a real eye catcher, and the stem color is a main reason
for it's appeal, apparently. It certainly attracted me. I used to see these Il Duca
nose warmer bulldogs fairly regularly, but never again with the green Cumberland stem, unfortunately.

Hey Dutch, that cauldron pipe is amazing!

Thanks guys! I got it for a really low price considering it's age, as well as the fact that it is unsmoked. I should have probably already posted it on the vintage tobacciania thread.

Well, this thread aggravated my PAD something fierce. I spent some time looking at morta pipes online. Seems like a new one, if you can find it, averages about $350. There's no way I could afford to do that, so, as any good self respecting pipemaker would, I decided to buy some morta (not easy to find) and make my own.

I should be finished this week, but here is a teaser until that time:

I don't know what Todd is asking in regard to morta pipes these days, but I didn't pay $350 a pop for 'em. Wink He's quite reasonable. Otherwise I would have skipped the idea.

Looks like a good shape coming along, O.

That's an awsome looking wood. Really like the blasted look on a few of them. Going to have to see if Blackforest Hardwoods has any next time i'm in the city. Looks like this stuff would make nice knife handles. Are there any toxicity problems with this wood for pipes ?

Well, everything has a price, I suppose. And "cheap" and "expensive" are words that are very subjective in nature so...sure. I'll sell it to you real "cheap." Twisted Evil

Don't worry. I've got enough morta for 3 more pipes. Those will be for sale.

Generally speaking it's old bog oak, i.e. oak trees that have been submerged in a bog, or bog like environment, for 1000's of years, some of the pipes shown have Morta that may be as old as 10,000 years.
