What th' WHAT?!

Post by Jake » Fri Jan 25, 2019 7:01 pm

Did you guys get the latest issue of Pipes and Cigars?
Chick Pipe Alert on page 48.
I'm not sure what to think of that. I want to like it, really I do... but painting over the whole surface just screams "bad grain!" to me.

Would you let yourself be caught smoking that thing?

I don't know what an Anne Julie pipe is, but this is painted white with like, coneflowers all over it.

Ann Julie is a pipe maker from Denmark and her pipes look flowery.

This is actually made by Nording. Here's a photo of the ad:

I like it more than my former mention. Though if I were going to buy one with flowers on it, I'd go with a Tsuge.

If that was a gift to me, I would sand it down to bare wood, buff it and keep a clean finish.

NO WAY would I be caught smoking that!

Nording has several freehands that have weird designs like that on them.

Here's another one: https://www.amazon.com/Nording-Harmony- ... g+freehand

I think it's just confined to their "Harmony" series. I'm not fond of them either.
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Thanks for sharing that. Hmm, yeah... not a fan. I dislike the half-toning almost as much as I dislike those flowers on the other one.

I might like a similar design that is stained with the artwork rather than painted or printed. Maybe I will experiment with that on one of my old drugstore pipes.

When these catalogs come in the mail, I've never, even once, looked at my wife and said, "Look at this!"...until I saw that pipe :lol:

I basically said What th' WHAT? and showed her and she made a face.
