Welcome to the ministry of pipe breaking, of which I used to be minister. I'm not sure where my current moniker came from, I've never broke a shotgun in my life.
Anyway, to your question, I don't know. But it always is.

Look at the bright side - you can put a nice band on it. I like banded pipes.

It's a slight oval shape. Not sure where to get a band that would fit it but I'll see what I can do. It's an unfinished Savinelli second. They darken up into to a nice warm satinny brown the more you smoke them. I'll try to save it but there is also a split on the other side of the shank. It's in my top five favorite pipes and it's a great smoker.

I smoked a pipe like that for a couple years actually, with a thin copper wire wrapped around the crack, with the twist not too tight, until the broken chip finally just broke off completely.
Edit to say more:. I'm serious. It became my garage pipe and pretty much stayed in the garage, and when not being smoked it sat on top of a lazy Susan nuts and bolts tray, usually half stoked with remnants. I was able to pass a cleaner through it, and it smoked great, but just wasn't a show piece. Visitors to the garage gave it some odd glances though, with the wire on it like that.
Thanks for the memory, I'd almost forgot about that old pipe.

I have an Upshall Dubladian with a similar crack and banding it would have interfered with the nomenclature. Dr. Dave (I miss him) suggested simply gluing it closed with epoxy and it worked pretty well. There is a risk of breaking the piece off completely, though, when you clamp it. The crack remains visible and the epoxy buffs out glossy, but the pipe is functional and it’s only noticeable if you look for it.

Not a good pic, but you can see the repair if you look close.

On behalf of the admins and moderators, I apologize.

I don't know where your current moniker came from either, but I will endeavor to rectify this unacceptable situation.

Does anyone have any moniker suggestions for our friend S&S? Feel free to PM me if you don't want your good name associated with your suggestion.

It's surprising that he's never owned, fired or handled a double gun or a single barrel. Weird.

Different kind of "breaking".

Unfortunately I earned the previous pipe breaking reputation during a pretty rough period.
