The one type of carving, other than good ol' wholesale rustication, that I do enjoy is the interpretation of candle wax. I don't know why. If I wasn't a pipe smoker, and if you'd describe dripping wax carved into wood, I would think it gaudy or something that deservedly would be collecting dust in a dingy Las Vegas casino warehouse. The idea of it still isn't appetizing. Yet, I do really like it a lot in almost all its forms.

That's a sharp one, too. Glad I can't see the stem. That's where Ardor often loses me.

Zeno, I agree that Ardor often chooses their stem treatment with little regard to the overall effect of the look, thankfully I'm rather sensitive to any portion of the whole being a distraction but in this case they nailed it.

From all your pipe photos, I think I'm safe in saying you like a busier pipe than I do, but I'll take your word for it here.

D R really nailed it on the design and overall craftsmanship on this pipe. I personally like the Candle wax drip look on a pipe if it's done with thought and taste. Simply amazing look & looks better when you smoke it......OUTRAGEOUS!

I've posted the pipe I made for myself last year called The Melting Pot & contrasting tamper I made called The Melting Candle. Made from Algerian briar aged over 75 years. It's an excellent smoker plus I enjoyed making it.



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!
