Does the stem actually fit to the antler or is there some internal system through the antler? Just curious, I like it Brother.

I used delron in the antler so the bit goes in it now it wont get lose by removing the bit then I countersunk the bit just a little bit since the antler was slanted. Thank you for looking

That's a really nice pipe Richard! I would imagine it was a challenge to find just the right size antler to match the flow of the lines of the pipe.

I guess I got lucky last Sunday my wife and I went to a flea market and there was a guy selling antler. I hope to make a few tampers from the points but the buttons was small enough I thought I would try and use it on a pipe. It was a lot of fun making this pipe, thank you for looking.

Best Regards
Richard

Lovely looking pipe there Richard, really like the use of the antler. It looks to set the pipe off wonderfully.

Nicely done Sir.

Seldom see antler as a stem accent, which is a shame because it looks great.

Really like what you've done with it Richard, and the pipe is no slouch either!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

I thank you all for the kind words. I do like to use other materials such as the antler, horn and bamboo sometimes I get lucky. Thanks again for looking.

Best Regards
Richard

I can't remember ever seeing a pipe with the antler. I like it a lot and think this is one of your best ideas. Keep it up. Smile

Thank you brothers for the kind words. I give it to a old friend of mine so looking forward to seeing how she smokes. I still have a few antlers left so I will try to make a few more just for the fun of it.

Best Regards
Richard
