I've been looking for a seven day set for 20 years. I say if we find one, we go halfsies and enter a tontine.

I had that one pulled up on smokingpipes.com a couple days ago when Mrs FredS walked in. She used the 'H' word when asking what that was. Seeing it's thumbnail is like seeing a house on fire, you have to click on it or circle the block to get a better look to see if you really saw what you think you saw.

I'm not sure if polymerized dino bone means it plastic (like genuine vinyl leather) or if it's bone that has been stabilized with cactus juice stabilizing resin.

Desiring is dangerous.
This blasted dublin arrived in today's mail:

A Rad Davis blasted Dublin sitter that was the 2008 Smoker's Forum POTY. This one is unsmoked.

Rad's blasts are amazing. He did the blasting on a few of my Mark Tinsky pipes, and their collaboration has made for some really nice pipes, but this is the first of Rad's own sandblasts I've seen in the flesh.

Those Montana fishing guides sure know how to carve a pipe!
