A Radice Bulldog.

To me, this is an exaggerated Bullmoose (even without a “jutting chin,” with apologies to Pease).
A fat (morbidly obese?) Rhodie?

Where’s Rusty when we need him? (So I can disagree with him.)

Whatever it is, truly gorgeous shape, flame and birdseye!
My kinda pipe.

I love it.

The Novak?
A little too wild for my taste.

I like these fat, hand-filling shapes very much (including the bent ball and the author).

I really like the caramel colored Cumberland stem on that one. A color you don't often see.

I'm getting worried. I know I dont have the imagination to see the puppies, but I should be able to see the birdseye. Maybe I shouldn't have gone to the Costco optometrist?

Amazing resolution, though. Beautiful pic. Always kinda wanted a Bonfiglioli.

Pipe must not have a lot of strong vertical grain, but some. So there isn't really as a distinct display of birds-eye, just a little. Your eyes are fine.

Here's a monster Ardor Urano "Giant" Huge Acorn Hawkbill. 7-1/4” long, 3-5/16” tall, 2-1/2" wide, with a 1-1/16" chamber diameter. Plan on a 1/2 day smoke with this one, and a full tin.

Favorite Picture of It

(This is a pipe I’ve had for a few years but have not smoked. I’m smoking another Viprati regularly, but I may give this one to my son.)

Is the Viprati Cherrywood actually made from Cherry wood? I ask because I see what looks like briar birds-eye

Cherrywood is now the name of that shape, Goose.

Image

At one time, several makers made a very simple setter in that shape out of two pieces of actual cherry wood. A larger diameter piece for the bowl and a thinner piece for the shank. You can still find them from time to time. I believe Ropp was best known for them.

Eventually the shape was copied in briar. They seem to be more commonly found made of briar these days.

That Viprati is a briar pipe.

That's a spectacular Stanwell!

Absolutely.
I’m sure you’ll get used to the smell of burning hair, skin, bone and flesh.




But if you tie one use rope tobacco.
And make a video.
You may be on to something!
