That fine grain is astounding. Is it just the one side or all the way around?

Something is telling me the stem should be bent a little more. :shrug:

the stem is bent a little more than it appears in that photo, and yes, the grain is perfect all the way around as future pictures will show. And the birdseye on the bottom is heavenly. I call it a big bottom brandy, but it may also be considered a hawkbill I think. I usually don't like hawkbills so I am calling it a brandy Smile

There's something to a stem being at, slightly above, or slightly below, the rim of the bowl, depending on the angle of the shank...at least to my eye. Maybe I'm weird. 🤷 Laughing Well, that goes without saying...I do believe, however, in this case, the roundness of the bowl would be further enhanced and framed with a stem achieving the same lines. For such a relaxed, plump pipe, the stem seems a little "stiff" artistically. Then again, the peachy, round bottom of that bowl would stiffen anyone... Twisted Evil

...birdseye picture necessary since you brought it up. cheers Very Happy

yeah, When you clench the pipe drops forward a bit, so I don't like to bend too much. In addition I like the pipe below so I can smell it better
