    An estate Blackwell I picked up today. Robert's a great guy, a talented whittler and I've been lusting after his pipes for ages. Not sure what you'd call this shape. Looks like a cross between a Dublin and a Lovat/Canadian. Any ideas?

    And a bizarre little pokerish looking pipe that smoke flakes like a champion. I restored this one from pretty rough condition.

    I'd call it a Canadian Dublin Pot.

    A bit off topic; In the first picture, what is that knife? Or is it a letter opener? I am intrigued, as a man who collects and uses knives.

    It's a J. Rodgers & Sons pipe knife. The handle is ebony heartwood. It has E<crown>R nomenclature/royal cipher, which would make it Edwardian and thus dates from 1901 to 1910. It cuts cake like nobody's business.

    Here's a better picture:

    My new vintage unsmoked Grabow Starfire that I got today. It still has the $5.95 sticker on it. :

    Wow, that is really cool. It really looks new, but now it's at least 100 years old! Thanks for sharing!

    great photos - how about one of the light tent you built (purchased light tents can be very expensive)?
