Small Dublin...

Post by JMG » Wed Feb 18, 2015 9:36 pm

This one was meant to be a good deal more substantial. Unfortunately, there was a flaw or sorts (really just a place in the bark/plateau that recessed deep into the block) that forced me to remove a good amount of material. Ended up with a smaller, thin-walled Dublin.

A great little pocket pipe! Sounds like you may have a buyer in Morley, too.

That is a darn fine pipe sir, very much up my alley as far as aesthetics go!

Oh, very nice. I like the small, thin walled pipes.

Has this sold yet?

Took this pipe up to my B&M today and weighed it. Clocked in at a whopping 17 grams. Not sure I could safely make a pipe any lighter.

It sold after an hour or so being at the shop, sorry.
