There is a bit of nice birds eye, but the grain is not phenomenal. Aside from the birds eye, the grain seems average.

For showcasing birdseye, yes. For $3,000+, no. :lol: It's still gorgeous, though.

Vivid. And skillfully stained.

My (solicited) opinion.

:cat: :face: :study:

It is nice but does not have that BAM!!! for me. It annoys me when people use flashy words, and a huge sales pitch so mark something so far beyond its price that they insult your intelligence.

I agree with what's been said already, Great birds eye, wonderful stain, but average grain everywhere else.

This shot is pretty nice. Not $3.2k nice.......

This Coronation grade Charatan he also has listed, now that that is phenomenal. Guessing this one will end up bringing in $1100-$1200?

MMeeeehhhh....the birds eye is nice, but the rest is lack luster to me. If being blemish free makes it phenomenal then I have three $3,500 pipes on my workbench right now :lol:

That's very good grain; the stain maximizes the birdseye, which by far is the best feature of the wood. The rest of the whirling grain is, I think, better than great straight grain as above on the straight grain pipe. It's so much more interesting, to me.

Great pipe which I'd love to own, but I could pay rent for 6 months or buy 1600 cans of pork and beans with $3200.

I think the hefty price is mostly that it was made by Julie.

Yeah, I never know, minute to minute, who I am either.....so no worries. I normally end up with a few sand pits in the birds eye, but I don't mind 'em. I have an apple now that has a small crack in the birds eye and other than that it is flawless and has some pretty nice grain....will post pics as soon as I tighten up the button a bit.

Not gonna make the show....got a baby that still relys on Momma to eat and can't get away even for the day :cry: .
Sure tried though.....Kansas City in June, I'll be there for sure.
