The birdseye in this one is stunning! The shape almost has a touch of Hawkbill to it.

No need to rescind, sir. We see what we see. We both like the pipe, after all. :)

I also like the shape of my Glencairn glass and I raise it to you for accepting my take on this piece of art.

Side track: how do you stamp a pipe? Do you heat the stamp first?

I'll not step on JMG's toes and spill the beans on how he 'stamps' his pipes. He's explained the process elsewhere.

Here's a link to an old thread on PMF. A lot of heavy hitters contributed to that thread about stamping their pipes.
