I have this very pipe stashed in my tackle bag now.

I'd say it's a no-brainer, which might be ironic in the Brain Stormin' thread.

The diamond shank and the Canadian are both great ideas. Fantastic, really.

How about combining both a Canadian and a bulldog into one long shanked dog? A Canadian bulldog, so-to-speak. Rusty had some beautiful examples as hugo posted earlier:

This would be unique, like Rusty.
This would have Canadian flair, like Rusty.
This would be a shape that, I think, Rusty would enjoy.
This would would be a reminder of Rusty's strong opinions on the bulldog/Rhodesian shape.

Made in Canada would be icing on the cake.

Anything with a long shank is going to be pricey. Double/triple that if it's an unorthodox shape like a long-shanked bulldog/Rhodie. That would have to be custom.

Good point. And it's probably a little small for most.
