Arky, give me a dead shark and about 20 minutes and I'll definitely obtain a piece of his spine.  

OOPS, forgot to mention...my older sibling is spineless....therefore a piece would not be obtainable.

Very possible theory, but do you have any idea how much bleach it would have taken to what most likely could have been dark brown spine... 5)

Arky old bean, I grew up on Long Island not far from the Atlantic coast. Went ocean fishing often. Not on a commercial fishing boat so no permit needed if by chance you catch a 🦈 shark 🦈.

At one point many years ago the area of Jones Beach ( Atlantic Ocean ) was so shark infested boats were sent out with shotguns to kill all sharks that drifted into warmer waters. As Stick would say " it was a BLOODY mess "!

I don't know why y'all are arguing with Arky..... He has it all figured out!

Well Travis, now you know how dedicated Jesse is getting a great pipe together. Not only did he wrestle down a Great White, Chop out it's spine and whittle it into a part of a stem for your pipe, but also had to deal with Greenpeace and Fish and Game to harvest said shark. Prolly cost a thousand bucks or so just to get the part. You should be super appreciative and send him something special in thanks for even offering to craft such a fine piece of art for you making a 'lucky guess', as you said. Very special pipe! Don't forget, he recommended you don't touch it so it colours out evenly!

So, for all y'all out there givin' the young buck a hard time, remember this....

Heck OW, nobody picking on Arky from what I can tell. Only one has prior and I sent that member a PM and has not happened since.

Yup. That's pretty much how it went down. The only detail OW left out was that I was smoking a pipe the whole time.


In truth, I was gifted a few pieces from pipe maker Clark Layton. Apparently it's used for various arts and crafts, but I've honestly never seen the stuff for sale before. I've used it once before on a pipe and it is actually pretty easy to work with.

Just stumbled over this thread and my jaw dropped when I saw that pipe--I knew you were one hell of a carver, Jesse, but you outdid yourself this time! Congrats, Arky, that's something special!

Okay, Arky, here is what you've won:

The 5th annual Jones Halloween Pipe! This year I wanted to go with an appropriately spooky bone theme. The bowl is sandblasted briar that has undergone a bleaching process, the shank is made from shark spine, and the stem is white juma. I've always wanted to try a bleached finish on a pipe before so this was a big experiment for me. This will darken up after it's been smoked much like a meerschaum. If you don't touch the bowl much is should darken uniformly. That's the one downside of the bleached finish.



Anyway, Congrats to Arky, and to the rest of you better luck next year!
