Here's some better pics for you. Gotta say, I love it so far. The blast is excellent, rings around the top of the stummel and birdseye across the bottom. Nice birdseye on the rim too. Bigger than I thought it was going to be. Nice sized bowl too, and drilled dead center just a hair above the bottom. Stem is real comfortable and the button is pronounced enough to be a good clenched. Should provide years of great smokes.

Ooo. My POY came in this afternoon. Goodness it's light!


Looks darn near identical to Jev's - except it has an Amber Tortoise stem with maybe a 1/16 bend. Just a skosh to break the line a bit. I got a tamper with it as well. Nice!

Very, very pleased.

I hope to have photos up tomorrow.

Some cell phone shots of mine.

Breaking it in right now with McClelland Red & Black...stellar!

Note: Mark stamped the matching tamper with the "BOB POY" also.

PS: I love the very slight bend in the stem...makes it "mine".

I do like that tamper. And the stem is very distinctive.

OK - check this out...


Top is Jev's pipe.  Beneath is mine.

I was originally going to go with the black stem and changed at the last minute.

Still a toss up to me. Both excellent, just different.

Both look great. I'd be hard pressed to pick one if they were before me. Very nice pipes... perhaps one day.

I still like mine better, same stem as BH but coral carve. As nice as Marks blasts are, his coral is special.

Taunt to Puff Daddy: What!  A pox on your coral pipe thing! My blasted beauty is easily superior to your crumby coral!


Puff Daddy: Please select your favorite taunt reply and apply liberally:

1) I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper!

2) I fart in your general direction!

3) Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

The coral looks good in that color to me. I tried to picture it in Cabernet during the decision making process and kept coming back with donegal rocky, of which I have two already. And I have to say that the quality of the workmanship on the sandblasting is outstanding.

Oh, I'm just teasing him. He knows he probably got the nicest one and all others pale in comparison.

Haha. I can't make a statement as to who picked best. You both went more creative insofar as the stems.

Maybe. But I really like the classic straight black with the Dark Blast on yours. It looks...right.
