The title is code for "busted". I had saved some cash to take to the NYC Show this Saturday, but it looks like I'll be going with a thin wallet. I was at dinner with my parents this evening and happened to glance down at the email from Rad Davis. You guys know my affinity for chubby Rhodesians and I couldn't resist this one. In the past two years, when he posted this shape, I didn't have the cash or I wasn't quick enough on the draw. I particularly like the way he uses this color of stain(s)and the black, vulcanite stem.

Congrats on your first Rad, Al. That sure looks like a fine piece and one you'll be happy with.

 Cool 


Cheers,

RR

What a pipe! I'd call it a fat author, though. Maybe that shape can be called the Chesterton:

Needless to say, Sav 320, eat your heart out!

I had to look up GK Chesterton, he sounds like quite a character. He influenced at least two authors (literary...not the pipe shape!) I enjoy, Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman.

I LOVE the blast and finish on that one. So Rad calls the Author shape a Rhodesian, interesting  Twisted Evil

. . . yeah, it kinds looks like an Author, but if Rad says its a Rhodesian, who are we to gainsay him? In any case, it's a great-looking pipe and a fine choice. Nice workmanship on the stem, I noticed. Congratulations!

I don't purchase many new pipes, so breaking one in is an infrequent task. This one took a while to break in, maybe 15 bowls? I guess the bare wood takes a while for cake to form. I was worried about my purchase decision 10 bowls in, but at 15+ she's doing quite fine.

You are to be admired. One for your pipe, and two, if Rad said it's a rhodesian, It is.

I was thinking author too but I'm not exactly sure what makes a Rhodesian anyways, so there, don't make too much fun of me. That said, looks grand, enjoy.
