A JAG Belge

Post by joegoat » Fri Jul 28, 2017 6:31 pm

The Cutty family of pipe shapes has appealed to me ever since I bought a Grabow Zulu on ebay. I finally got to make one myself. I went with the Belge shape. After multiple drawings with varying degrees of cant I opted for 115 degrees. This was the most aggressive that still looked good to me. It should also be a practical amount to still be a good smoker. The grain really works for the shape and a contrast stain really makes it pop. The mount is ox horn (dang I like that stuff!). I hope y'all like it!

This pipe is right up my alley.

Open airway, light, and well balanced.

It's a truck pipe so, it has a bit condom.

Ran 3 bowls of Carter Hall through her in 2 days. Moved over to back to back 5050's.

Yep. This will do just fine.
