There it is. We should bribe Pepik to change "Rhodesian" to "Bloodhound" anytime someone uses it here.

The Bloodhound is similar in shape to the Bulldog. But while the Bulldog has a diamond shaped shank, the Bloodhound's shank is a square shape, rotated 45°.

buff
noun
informal, an expert on or devotee of a given subject: a cheese buff.

Forgive the reference to Del in the above definition, but I copied it verbatim from an online dictionary.

No group of people, in my experience, argue minutiae as vociferously as a group of anything "buffs."
In this case, pipe buffs.

Well, maybe amateur theologians.

I once walked away from a couple of railroad buffs arguing about the definition of an articulated locomotive. One of them had just published the second volume of a series he had written titled,"The Articulated Locomotive in North America." He was, if you will, a railroad buff's railroad buff. I managed to stick around for a while, but after a couple of hours I realized the question would not be resolved that day. I think I mentioned this in a thread a while back.

I'd previously read the threads Cleon linked to.
They popped up when I was doing an internet search to resolve the question for myself.

The great social historian, Rodney King, addressed the matter thusly: "Can't we all just get along?"
To which I reply, "Hell no! We're pipe buffs!"

Again I say, beautiful pipe, Brian.

And while we're at it, tell me, what exactly is a Bing's Favorite?

A long-stemmed 1/8 bent billiard?
A short Churchwarden?
With that long shank, before the bent long stem, is it more properly considered a long bent-stem Liverpool?

If it were a Hans Christian, would it come with two stems or four?

This is an essay question and it counts as half your grade. The other half is a correct explanation of the Filioque.

My Bing just arrived and it's a beauty, without a stupid golf ball and club. A proper Bing's Favorite does not have a golf ball and club. Any slightly bent, long-stemmed, billiard family pipe with a golf ball and club is properly called, and this gets technical, just silly.

Thanks DL.

Marvelous! I attempted a bulldog too early in my pipe making self education it was symmetrical, but the proportions were off. Your example is oozing with experience! The lines are perfect! You have some real talent.

Ok. Are you going to make me read old posts or is this pipe still available for purchase?

John boy wants to know how much is shipping.

I want to know if I can get this bad boy.

ID is sad because I'm passing on his Pete Dog but dickering with you.

Goose is hopeful I get in.

All the goose sockpuppets can draw a serious vacuum.

Feelin' me?

Should have written that from the start, no, it's not available. It was made on comission.
Hope you guys have a less confused life now :)

ID,
A thousand apologies for the improper ID of DL as ID.

I'm going to blame it on the pain meds.
Or age.

Or my confusion of the two letter name abbreviations . . .

Oh crap. Is this when they look at you with those sad eyes and someone softly suggests, "Dementia, this how it begins."

I love the pipe.
