I had a great time making three Lovats for my three sons this year. I wanted to do a shape that would utilize my new lathe, and afford a more classical shape to round out their collections. I started thinking they'd be blasts thinking I'd never come up with three decent smooths out of three pipes. Big surprise there! Italian Briar with hand cut ebonite stems. The accent is horn.
It's wonderful to have pipe smoking sons! Merry Christmas Chris, John, and Daniel!
