    So Sas just sent me a message with some pics of what he came up with for a pipe. I had asked him for something with a nice bend, decent size bowl, nice grain and a cumberland stem, and a churchwarden stem to go along with it. Some small flaws in the briar on the back of the shank but I think the quality on the rest of the pipe more than makes up for any minor flaw.
    Can't wait for this bad boy to arrive.
    These are the pics he sent me.

    Ooooo that's a great looking pipe, and the double stem action is neat too. I love that color and grain!

    Nice BST!

    What is the material at the end of the stem, just in front of the black ring?

    I am really on the BST train for my next pipe. Everything he does looks so great, and I feel good about supporting someone who obviously cares about pipes. So unless a birthyear Dunhill comes up I am saving my shekels for one of his!

    Enjoy in good health.

    Not sure what the actual material it is, sas called it a Walnut band. But I'll let him answer that question for what the actual material is.

    I'd tap that....


    ...on a cork to knock out the ashes after smoking, because I wouldn't want to damage such a fine pipe.

    Walnut band is made from (drumroll)......................... Walnut. The wood. It's brown. Just like the band.

    Want me to tell you how good it smokes AussieTx?

    Gah! I'm not a big bent fan, but that churchwarden stem pic was really eye-catching! Nice pipe, really really nice.

    I hope he remembered to drill the draft hole...........

    Seriously, gorgeous pipe, there is nothing much better than a well-executed bent billiard.
