Thank you sir, I am not a big fan of the olive wood, it is very easy to work with and fun to make pipes but the briar has my heart. thank you again for the kind words.

Best Regards

Yes, this. The antler pipe is very cool but the olive billiard is stunning in it's simplicity and shape. Looks like you have this classic shape well in hand Richard.

So I'm guessing olive wood is maybe softer and more forgiving than briar? To date I've not seen any pits in olive wood pipes, or perhaps I just haven't been looking hard enough?

In any event, it's an interesting wood in the way the grain takes the stain. Cosmetically it's very attractive.

And I hasten to add that I don't own an olive wood pipe yet. Sometime down the road I will though.


Cheers,

RR

Yes sir olive wood is much softer than briar and as far as pits I haven't seen any but I have only done three pipes with it who knows I may in time find some peace's with some kind of problem, as far as stain I don't use any kind of stain on it all I use is wax. Thank you for the kind words.

Both look very good and you certainly have that billiard shape down to a science but the pipe with the antler is right in my wheelhouse. I think it represents your best one yet. Smile

I'm with AJ on this one Richard, love the Billiard but this one is very appealing, fabulously quirky in all the right ways, love it. Smile
