It's an odd thing how white just seems ideal on some pipes. You called this one very well.

Very nice job there Sid, the white stem compliments the grain nicely.

Agree with the above. I'm not normally inclined towards white stems but this combination works very well indeed.

Well done Sid!

Cool 


Cheers,

RR
