This pipe I made just for the hell of it, it is one of the many blocks I have where the drilling went too far off centre and it was going to go in the bin but I opted to go ahead and make the pipe as the grain is just so cool.

I can't sell this pipe as the draught hole drilling is just that bit 'too' off centre for my liking, don't negatively effect the smoking qualities of a pipe, virtually all of my pipes are like this and worse a lot of them and they all smoke just fine.

Folk don't like to see off centre drilling and I just know this one is that bit too off so it's just gonna sit in the box until I can figure out what to do with it, not my sort of pipe or I'd smoke it myself, it is really cute but it's just not my thing.

Nothing wrong with her Kirk, she's a beauty IMO.

Kirk, that grain is stunning. I like the partial plateaux top on that. Tis a shame about the off centre drilling. That is an elegant design.

Love the "swooping" lines! Stunning grain as you mentioned.

Fantastic grain on that one Kirk.

I can't help thinking the slightly off center drilling will make any difference to the way it smokes.

Lucky chappy who's gonna get that one.



Cheers,

RR

Wow! I've never much cared for the horn shape but damn I like that one. Splendid grain and that partial plateaux is just stunning. I'm sure the recipient of this gift is going to love it. As far as how it smokes it's a BSP it's gonna smoke like a champ!
