    Sorry, been waiting for this for quite a whil enow and had to make a post. Unfortunately the batteries in my cam are dead and i couldn't locate the charger.. so i'll have to leave you hanging a little while.. i'll have pics up by tomorrow.

    For now I will say that the pipe came packaged in unusualy thick fur that smelled of musk and unusually shaped bacon. The looks are rugged and handsome.

    Unusually shaped bacon? So, Canadian then? It's not one of those sissy Squatchy things, is it?

    Nono, it's a Mario Grandi... Bacon is club shaped in Italy.

    Hopefully i will not be dismembered by some sort of large forest dwelling primate for posting these pics when they aren't mine.

    I've been pondering that a while lol. Don't have too much in stock here atm. but figure i will go for a rugged, but not too savage english.. Billy Budd and Nightcap are a bit on the rough side for my palate.. McClelland 3 oaks, 3oaks syrian or dunhill 965 are the remaining candidates. Would perhaps be appropriate to smoke a new tobacco in a new pipe and i haven't tried the 2 last ones yet. Think 965 will be the one.

    Probably not since i don't know what "July Dog Madness" is. Though i assume it is related to bulldogs.

    It is indeed a sweet pipe. I saw a bulldog he had made earlier on this forum and fell in love so i contacted him about making something similar. Not a copy, but .. similar. It is spot on. I love the shape, size, weight, textures, color.. it's perfect and suits my rugged manly looks ofc ;)

    Just came back in from smoking it for the first time. Descided on 3 oaks as it is my go to blend atm. Packed it full and have been puffing away for an hour and a half. Emptied the bowl, and for once it was pretty much only ash.

    Needless to say i am happy about the pipe ;)

    Check out Moo's thread The (Bull)Dog Days of Summer up in the "Now Smoking" section. Glad to hear you love the pipe.
