Desiring is dangerous.
This blasted dublin arrived in today's mail:

A Rad Davis blasted Dublin sitter that was the 2008 Smoker's Forum POTY. This one is unsmoked.

Rad's blasts are amazing. He did the blasting on a few of my Mark Tinsky pipes, and their collaboration has made for some really nice pipes, but this is the first of Rad's own sandblasts I've seen in the flesh.

Those Montana fishing guides sure know how to carve a pipe!

Rusty was right. In order to stop you have to stop looking.
I failed to stop looking.

Beautiful pipe! Rad’s pipes are just a C note or three out of my range.

I got very lucky and paid a lot less (a LOT less) than this pipe might ordinarily cost.

I keep noticing that I tend to look at quite a few Randy Wiley pipes. Are they worth the money? Estate money that is though he has some new ones right around $150 too.

Not to me. I've only handled ten or so, and have only owned one, but I wasn't impressed with the drilling. I'd make sure to examine one personally before buying.

DP that pipe is a thing of beauty!

JudgeRusty, I think the pipe you speak of is the 2012 CPS POY. It is the same one pictured on sweetandsour's posts. It was carved as a collaboration of some the carvers from CPS. Mine is a very fine smoker...reminds me I haven't had it out in a while.

From the thumbnail picture I thought they were using it as a planter.

I’d love Becker pipes even if the family history were not so extraordinary. That history just makes them that much more special.

I made this one a few years ago. It's kind of, sorta, quasi like that one. I'll sell it to you for half of whatever that Becker is going for.
