Well I started off with the Idea of this being a churchwarden, so I laid out my block, drilled it and then proceeded to make the stem, now for churchwardens I by those premolded  vulcanite stems,  well as I was cutting the tenon it broke, so I had to make another, and then when I was doing the shaping as I was almost done a pit/crack should up on the bowl near the bottom front cheek, so I thought well i guess I'll rusticate it, as soon as I hit the spot, a big chunk flew out where the pit was, and what was left looked like there was a chance the wall of the tobacco chamber might be to thin, so I made a shorter stem and I am gonna smoke this one myself! and with the first bowl being McC Christmas cheer 2012, I can say it is smoking pretty good for it's maiden voyage

Harry I think that is a wonderful pipe, bravo to you my friend for letting folk know about and see one of your 'pipes that never was', too many pipe makers refuse to let people see their failed pipes, of course they're not failed but they're not perfect either, nowt wrong that one Buddy, looks like a winner to me. cheers

Good looking reclamation...fine looking pipe, Harry!

How do you like the Yenidje blend?  I've tried the Yenidje Supreme...was not impressed by it.

I love the McC yenidje straight and the Highlander, Also the Drama Reserve is very good has an oilve taste to it, weird I know but it seems to go well with the tobacco flavor

I just decided to dedicate this pipe to the McC grand oriental series that do not contain latakia or perique in it, just straight Va/oriental blends
