So a little background, every year on pipemakers forum we hold a pipe in the hat event. The objective is for participants to make a pipe and exchange it with another pipe maker for general comment and critique. The PITHs have also usually had a theme. Last year it was the cavalier. The year before it was the bulldog. This year our theme was produce, ie, each entry had to be inspired by some sort of produce you could get in the farmer's market, but also had to have a long shank.

Well this was far outside my comfort zone so I figured it would be a good exercise. I did some preliminary designs and this is what I came up with. I call it the Lima Bean Sprout!

It really was a very nice piece of briar. One of the best cross-grained pieces I've had the pleasure of working with.

Very cool!

I expected it to be rounder until you showed the birds eye view and it was narrow, which really brought it home.

Fantastic work my friend!

Nording has a "Royal Flush" series that features a few similar shapes... but this one is far, far better.

Cool
