Ah dangit, my work firewall won't let me see whatever you posted.
I wish my firewall was that kind to me. :cry:

Pipes that are thin and long are not “girly.” After all this one may have been made by a girl but I’d smoke it in a second . . .

I was wondering when someone was going to mention Scotties pipes. I didn't know anybody outside of Kansas City even knew about her and those super thin pencil shanks she makes.

So far we have a girlie pipe made by a man and a gentlemanly pipe made by a girl. All we need to top of this sundea is Anne Julies girly pipes made by a girl.

I've followed Scottie's work online for a few years now. Nothing short of amazing. I have not, unfortunately, had the pleasure of handling (let alone smoking) one of her pipes. Those ultra-thin stummels are reinforced inside with tubing, stainless steel I think.

Still, while I admire the workmanship (or is that workwomanship? workpersonship? eh, whatever...) the thin-line style isn't quite to my personal taste. If I were going to spend $400 on a pipe, I think I would get something else, like a David Huber or a Rad Davis.

I also can't see myself ever making a pipe with such delicate proportions. I prefer pipes with a little more bulk to them.

I have one of Scottie's pencil shanks. It's a good flake pipe, but mine will burnout within a few years because the bottom of the bowl is migggghty thin. It was one her first pencil shanks is the reason, I suspect.
