Beautiful pipe, Steve! I'm supposed to be on the wagon also, but I plan to look this guy up.

My latest eBay purchase is a whimsical Preben Holm Hand Cut; this is nice light, little pipe; I love his pipes.

Looks like a tooth in really bad condition, but I love it. Looks like it ways almost nothing. Neat.

Jeantet Richmond with a beautiful hand cut stem, very shapely. It was unsmoked until I got my hands on it. I'm breaking it in with Stanwell Melange, and it seems to be a very happy pipe.

This pipe arrived in yesterday's mail.
I commissioned it back in January, before I had to go on the pipe aquisition wagon . . .

Here's a better image of the Upshall Tilshead. About 6 - 5/8th in long. Bowl height is 2 - 3/8th. Chamber walls are over 5/16th in thick. The flame grain wraps around about 75% of the pipe, and that was probably why this was relegated a Tilshead by Upshall.

The pipe in hand so you can get a better idea of how large it is.....

Yup, I figured out the Lorenzo part. I have never owned or smoked a pipe in this shape .... I like it.

The next pipe from the gifted lot. I kinda like the bulldog bowl, but sure about how steep the bend is with the stem.

Another pipe from the gifted lot. See previous posts.

I've never seen an oval bowl before. I've been able to smoke a bowl of Maltese Falcon in this already. This was a very clean smoke and the briar never got hot.ImageImageImage
