Placed Pipes (262)

These pipes have found homes.

This pipe was donated to my good friends at the Greater Kansas City Pipe Club for the silent auction held at thier  2011 Pipe and Tobacco Show, June 25th and 26th. I had recently re-worked the stem and bit. It is now thinner and should have a little more open draw. These changes are not reflected in the pictures bellow.

Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut German Ebonite Half saddle stem with an integral tenon. A graceful but somewhat squat Bulldog with a good deal of Danish influence. Nice ring grain blast. However, it has major issues that prevent it from being stamped and graded. a. two flaws blasted out and b. the tenon and mortise, while matching, are shorter than I normally like. Still, I love the look and feel of this piece over all and it was a heartbreaker. I haven't decided it's fate yet. I might sell it as a second, but I'm leaning toward keeping it.

A small Danish influenced bent ball with small capacity. I really like this pipe and decided to finish it for myself in spite of a very large flaw opening up in the shank. I'm hoping to make more along these lines, only without the flaw!
