Shame about the crack but those things happen. Absolutely beautiful workmanship there though. I will definitely be setting out time to smoke her as soon as she arrives. Quite grateful to you buddy she's a real beauty.

Arky, very nice pipe, looks very different. I like one of a kind for sure. Do you finish off the wood with Carnauba wax? It protects and brings out the grain of the wood. Keep up the great work.

Arky, you can also finish the wood with just a little mineral oil, olive oil or really any oil you have, just rub a bit in and wipe dry. You can do this 2 or 3 times. You did a great job cheers

It looks amazing Arky! It will definitely get a pride of place slot in my rotation. Don't worry about putting any kind of finish on it. It'll pick up oils from my hands and darken up quite nicely without any help at all. For future stuff though any oil or even bees wax are great to finish wood with. Bees wax in particular adds a sweet scent and taste that is really nice. Nice bit to that is I know you have it laying around. Really looking forward to the maiden voyage. Is that bowl white oak, or is that maple? My eyes aren't what they used to be I'm afraid. It's absolutely beautiful though.

Willow! Well color me surprised there. It looks amazing and I can't wait to give her a go. I'll have to see if I notice any help with headaches. Cottonwood is good for that as well. I should be picking cottonwood buds here in the next few months for my winter supply. Wax her up if you chose to but don't feel you need to by any means.

Best

Ok well the pipe got here Thursday so I've had a few days to get some smoking in.

First off I gotta say it's not a briar guys so don't expect it to smoke like one. Mine is all willow, it's very light given its size. It has an even more open draw than my cobs, so it's a smoking machine once lit. I've done a bowl of good old PA, not bad at all. Then I had a bowl of PS Bullseye Flake, much better! The willow imparts a very distinctive flavor to the smoke which to me just goes better with the Va tobacco. As it cakes up I'm sure that will become a moot point. The stem on mine is quite decorative and yes the mouthpiece is round. As I'm not a clencher this is no problem at all for me. The McC Blackwoods Flake in this was a bit much for me. I had to finish it over 3 sessions but it smoked and tasted just wonderful. I'm thinking something lighter just because of the shear size of the bowl. Each bowl so far has run a good half hour and better. All in all I'd say it's a very well made pipe that smokes better than any cob I have. It's not a briar so don't treat it or expect it to behave like one. Treat it like a cob and you'll be rewarded with many sweet smokes. There is no finish on mine as that was my stated preference, but I'm sure if you want it waxed that should be easy for Travis to take care of. I'm very much impressed and obliged to Travis for such a wonderful pipe set. I would not hesitate to recommend one of these pipes to anyone.
