Big fan of the, "drip melt" look. While I usually prefer pipes for their use rather than their looks, I am always impressed when someone makes visual music with briar.

Walt Cannoy was the absolute master of this style of pipe! He had a long waiting list of people who wanted him to make them 1. The 1st one he made he pulled out the pipe for its 1st smoke out front of the hotel he was at for the Chicagoland pipe show and before he was halfway done with the 1st bowl a man bought it from him while he was still smoking it! BTW, The engineering is perfect and has been one of the best smoking pipes I have ever owned.

Very nice collection, congrats.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Nice pipes gentlemen. My pipes are all pretty old and need polished. I've worn the stems out on most of my Petes but every time I think of sending them in for repair I think my money would be more wisely spent on tobacco. So someday maybe I'll get them repaired and post some pics. :pipe3:

Scweeet! I wanted to check out the grain and silver work. It's also good to see it's not a P-lip. Nice Pete.

What line?
