I just finished this one today, I wanted to see if I could pull off a Calabash shape with a low bowl and a slightly bent stem set up so the working around the shank would prove exceedingly trying, wasn't sure if I was going to pull this one off for a while, even after so many long and tiring hours of filing I just didn't seem to be getting anywhere. Slowly but surely though some dogged determination won through in the end, I know it's got some idiotic flaws but it was never intended as a serious pipe so I really wasn't all that careful with her, turned out quite nicely I guess, not perfect but neither am I so that works out well enough.

Kirk,
Knowing the tools you work with and how you work, I'd have to say THAT PIPE is one of if not the BEST you've made!! I'm not a big fan of briar Calabashes, but THAT is one I'd buy in a heartbeat if I had the money !! DAMN man, once again you've outdone yourself !!  cheers cheers cheers

Love the color on this one buddy! You definitely have the rustication down to an art form, just beautiful. Can't wait too see what's next!
