The lines are smooth and the overall symmetry is good. The grain is pretty sweet as well!

That looks pretty nice! How many pipes have you made? Was that from a kit or from scratch?

Thanks all, this was a first try at this shape and overall I'm pretty happy with the results.

Thomas, I would say I've made somewhere in the 15-20 pipe range and yes the briar was from scratch but the stem was a premade vulcanite that I had. I thought the stem would go well the shape. I've made a few stems from scratch also but with my limited time at home I didn't really feel like spending that much time on a stem. Call me lazy! What a Face The last couple I've made were just for fun and not by request so they will go to a friends Cigar shop were he'll display/sell. Its great having a self funding hobby!
