#59 - Rusticated Dublin with brass

Hello guys!
I just finished up this pipe, all black and with a nice big brass mount on it.
It's sold by the way :)

Wow. The shape and proportions of this pipe are a perfect compliment to the ring grain. I mean PERFECT.

That's a great shape well executed. Super nice!

I like the rustication too.

I looked a long time trying to decide if this is rusticated or if it's a blast with perfect grain. Spill the beans Brian, is it rusticated or blasted?

It's definitely rusticated. The way the rings are perfect on the bowl but radiate on the shank is a giveaway. I'm not saying it's impossible to find a block oddly shaped like that but it would be a one in a million and you'd have to plan the alignment perfectly and still get lucky.

It's one of the most attractive rustications I've ever seen though. Reminds me of Rubio's faux sandblast rustication but less contrived in a strange way.

Thanks for all the kind words.
As the title for the topic says, it's rusticated :-)

This thing is a gorgeous pipe! Every detail is a sign that it was made by a true master!

Fantastic creation Brian.
Question: Since brass will oxidize, do you coat or treat the brass in anyway to slow or stop oxidation? Or, do you do that by simply polishing it periodically with regular pipe maintenance?

I simply just buff and polish. It will look shiny for a while, but the owner will have to keep it shiny if he/she wants to. That's easily done with some cloth and brass polish
