    Ok, so not crazy about the bowl shape, but the stem on this pipe is really neat!!

    Most unusual pipe. I quite like it, I'm sort of leaning toward the more unusual lately. There are some very clever carvers out there.
    Keep this one in mind for ideas in future models Pottsy.
    Cheers.

    Oh my god.. can we say pipegasm?
    Thats awesome! Butz Choquin deffinitly makes some interesting designs.
    I've been kinda wanting one for a while now, but that makes me want one even more.
    They are different pipes, and nothing really too traditional about some of the lines Ive seen from them.
    Im putting a BC on the PAD list with a Nording Giant Freehand and a Falcon.. :)

    We got several of these into the store recently. More than one had several fills. More than I thought the price warranted. Other than that they were okay. On a personal note I did not care for them from an asthetic standpoint but again that is purely personal.

    Well, I like the stem, and that's about it. I wouldn't buy the pipe as I really do not like the bowl shape. But damn that stem is sweet.

    ya know what would be cool . To have something on the stem like that ... that you could pull off an use as a tamper .

    Looks great in the picture, someone actually made something different.

    Hi,

    Though I normally have pretty conservative tastes as regards pipes - I really like that one. Were I in the market for another pipe ( which I'm definitely not! ) that one could be tempting.

    Thanks for posting

    That is taking the idea of a thumb groove and really running with it. Looks really striking.

    I was looking at those about a week ago. The stem is what caught my attention, the bowl shape is interesting, but I think a less extreme groove might look better.
