    New RDPipes Partially Blasted Dog Lovar 5/24/20 (SOLD!)

    Absolutely beautiful. If I'd been told this was a pipe by Poul Ilsted, I wouldn't have doubted it - gorgeous lines, shaping and balance.

    Experimental #4

    Waiting for the postman's knock, Kirk. I think the fact that you pulled this little stunner out of a piece of crap briar, when your heart really wasn't in it, using only files and sandpaper, in a damp drafty shed, says more about your skill, your art, than any other pipe you've made. And...

    My humble office, where I smoke and study all too often.

    That's a beautiful and inspirational space you have there, Joshoowah. It looks to me like you have created a little spot where study will be a pleasure, not a drudge. Good luck with your path.

    Pipe Bag

    I really like that - ticks all the boxes for me. I've seen a few pipe 'pouches' and none of them have interested me - but your 'purse' is just the ticket - i like the elegant simplicity of it - it will do the job nicely. That pipe, by the way, is absolutely gorgeous!
