Opus 2 #37 Grade C, Smooth Bulldog

$245, Sold September 2007, thanks!

Specs:
Grade C
Height: 1.9"
Diameter:1.9"
Overall Length: 5.9 "
Chamber Diameter: 3/4"
Chamber Depth: 1.63"

From Italian Plateaux briar with a hand cut German Ebonite Stem, and integral tenon. The nicest bulldog I've made yet. I'm pleased with the lines--the touch of Danish influence I've been striving for. An innovative angle makes a nice size chamber while facilitating the shape. Very nice birdseye on the top and bottom, also on the top of one side of the stem. Straight and flame flowing up the sides, front and back. Three un-distracting flaws keep this a grade C, but it's a really beautiful pipe.

2006 Christmas Pipe

Specs:

From Algerian briar
Bowl Height: 2.05"
Bowl diameter at rim:1.74
Overall Length: 6.25 "
Chamber Diameter: 3/4"
Chamber Depth: 1.53"
Hand cut German Ebonite Stem
Delrin Tenon

I hope this is the first of traditional S.E.THILE Christmas pipes. The one and only for 2006 was a gift for my son, John, who loves Bulldogs, and loves Christmas. He reports it's an excellent smoker.

I find Bulldogs to be an extremely challenging shape. The lines and angles demand symmetry, and show every deviation from it.

A couple of flaws and sand pits, but nothing terrible, and decent grain, so I kept it smooth.

Specs:
Grade: A
Height: 1.77"
Diameter: 2.06" at the top
Overall Length: 6.0 "
Chamber Diameter: .75"
Chamber Depth: 1.39"
Weight: 60 grams (2.1 oz)

Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut Brindle (Cumberland) full tapered stem with an integral tenon. A large squat Bulldog with distinctly Danish influence. Beautiful straight and flame grain on the sides, front, and back of the bowl, flowing from very nice birdseye top and bottom. The shank also has some beautiful grain transitionsl. The stain I ended up with for this really helps the beautiful grain to pop, and I think it looks fantastic with the Brindle. I love the look and feel of this piece over all. It may be my nicest Bulldog to date. Very clean, with only a very few tiny specs that are not the least bit distracting, and very difficult to see without magnification.
