Hubba, hubba...
And one more hubba.
If I had $250, it would be mine.
It sure is a beauty. I love the slim lines, the blast and the very slight bend in the stem.
Who made it?
Did you notice that the bowl is hexagonal? I love faceted pipes.

It looks like a Dunhill Shell special to me, but the price is too low for that to be the case.

It looks Italian, I think. Cristiano used to sell that shape and in hexagonal bowl too. I have a Canadian Cristiano in a brown that is very close to that.

All I know is this is a scary thread. I like that pipe.

This is a Peterson. A little on the clunky side, but still appealing to me. I need to stop looking at pipes.

That pipe is not clunky. It's adorable. One finger on the stem, one under the bowl, and one on the front of the bowl. Delightful.

It works on this particular pipe. I can't pinpoint it. It just does.

If there were to be another pipe at this time, it would be another Tinsky. The more I smoke them, the better I like them.
Make that love them.

And if there were to be one more it would be this one:

I've got pencil shanks stuck in my head.

Have you (or anyone that reads this) ever seen a small pencil shanked bulldog - diamond shank and all? If you have, please post. I'm not sure if that would be a pleasing design or not. I'm just curious.

I've not seen one, AFAIR.

I imagine that such would be logistically difficult, the squaring of a shank already increasing the perceived diameter of a shank without adding much in the way of durability. It seems to me that any squared shank that would look like a pencil-shank would, in practicality, have to be a spaghetti-shank which is hiding underneath the four triangular superadditions.

I think you're right. The wall thickness of the shank facet that is closest to the tangent point of the draft hole would have to be super thin to pull off the look. But, you know what, I bet somebody could do it. Practicality be damned. I'm sure they'd ruin a bunch of blocks in the process. :lol:
