Pipe looks great! Not to crazy about the name though. I know several Irish men who would feel like they're being stereo typed.

Thanks Everyone !

DP I just called it that cause it's a whacky version of a dublin I could see in my head, but mostly cause the tobacco chamber is off center,
Besides I never met a Drunken Irishman I didn't like!

hehehe glad you ask funny thing is this pipe was supposed to adorn my first hand made stem, but right as i was almost finished drilling the draft hole with the tapered bit it locked up into the only piece of acrylic I had that I wanted to use on this pipe, I have a piece of black but I wanted to use a contrasting stem color, so I took the piece of acrylic out of the lathe threw it around the shop while calling it names then settled on a preformed one

Nice looking pipe Big C, reminds me of my favorite recurve bow with a thumb ledge. Looks like it will be comfortable to hold.

We've a long history of being able to make fun of ourselves and others that has been attacked for political correctness. Just one example were the great Jewish humorist.

Why does the modern thought assign ulterior motives to forms of humor that have been with us throughout time? We have always been able to make fun of ourselves through overstatement and warped context. Now everything is oh so personal.

Give me a break.

P.S. I am about 1/4 Irish and do hereby absolve the pipe of 1/4 of any guilt intended. Damned if I won't drink to that!

1) ALL the old cliches are true. That's why they're cliches.
Not always, in every case, but often enough.
The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree, and a border collie
rarely grows up to be a basset hound.

2) Like the top especially. Reminds me of the tail fins on
the 1950s battleship cars.

What a Face

The reason they want to create that mentality/climate, is to set themselves or their bretheren up for an easy win in the courtroom. If litigation were not a possibility, I doubt you would hear near as much press as you do.
