I'd call it a "cavalier".

And I think that it's a quite comely pipe. But that's just me.

Google pipe shape charts.
Or maybe ask a pipe dealer, perhaps someone that has 66 pipes for sale on eBay.

I'd just call it a modified billiard. It looks like that might be a finger rest protruding from the front of the bowl.

That's a Marlin.

Danish made. The shape celebrates the opium pipe. Like today's cutty made of briar.

Dungolt D. Marlin died in 1979. Yep. OD'd on smack. That monkey rode on his back all the way from Viet Nam.

Nab it up. Marlin memorabilia is rare.

I don't know what difference it would make because I'm not soliciting sales here, just seeking some knowledge and info. But yes, this odd shaped pipe is a pipe I will be listing on eBay.

In a friendly environment, there is a difference when an opinion or knowledge is sought for pecuniary gain, especially if sought clandestinely. There is no problem with having 5k worth of pipes for sale, it's being up front about involving others in the process.

Man you guys are tough, I don’t personally care if you ask questions about pipes you are selling... but that’s just me. I do agree, quite ugly, I like the finger rest idea, like in case your finger gets tired, you can charge extra for that feature...

Could be very convenient for certain smokers who find it tiring, holding their pinkies up.

Looks to me like it was made by someone with a very cavalier attitude toward traditional billiards.

Icebreaker.

*Edit* Looked it up... What I was thinking of was a "Bulbous Bow," not an icebreaker.

It's an elbow pipe modeled after a style that was popular with several Indian tribes.

I was just hoping to get some traffic Goose's way.

I say you get to make up your own name for that one, Goose. Perhaps the Pointer or the Nubbin.
