You should get a JMG.
Agreed!

This is definitely a pipe of my desiring.
It blows me away.

Not many pipes have impressed me as much.

This one by Wayne does ...

If it were possible, these are two pipes I’d get.

Not that I’m complaining.
I have more than my share.
Confession. I couldn't hold back from pursuing the pictured JMG. It is expected to arrive today. That''ll be my second artisan and I'll have to come up with a name. The prior one was a Nate King-- I call it the "purple sitter". It's a morta with titanium piece.
Update.... the USPS seems to be having a real adventure similar to the classic "Oregon Trail" game-- unfortunately there are not as many text updates. The package has not yet arrived. That's right... USPS missed their predicted date by a lot. But!! It is still being tracked and is coming.

Thus, I have not yet had the honor of giving feedback and info about the beauty of the pipe. But I do look forward to it.

Nice looking pipe, and quite a handful!
That’s a Goose sized pipe if I ever saw one.

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Wow, just wow, that blast, bamboo extension with reverse steel tendon and a briar bit. If you got the jack it is an unsmoked estate on Smoking Pipes.

:!: :!: :!: YOWZA!!!

That is the most exquisite briar stemwork that I've ever seen.

A difficult task I imagine.

I totally love briar stems and have a small collection of them --- I never tire of showing the beauty below that Wayne made me because it's just gorgeous and pictures don't do it justice, it absolutely radiates.

This pipe that used to belong to wosbald has haunted me since I first saw it. I've posted it a few times over the years. This is the yearly repost.

Sometimes you look at a pipe pic and can almost feel it in your hand. This is one of those.

At the bottom of a bucket of wosbald's tears?

Really, I don't know. It was on smokingpipes.com a few years ago. That's where this photo came from.

It looks like an effortless clench to me. It's a strange way to describe a pipe, but most of the ones I am attracted to have that quality.

I saw those and thought the same thing. Especially the ruby one. But alas I have my eye on another pipe, just hoping to make it work soon.
