    Ok, not what you was expecting huh? This is my favorite "show" pipe. I very rarely smoke it because it's heavy, but it is a beautiful pipe. It's a P.T.M that I picked up a few years ago.

    Jeebs, I am not sure what the PTM acronym stands for. I couldn't find a website for them, but I will keep looking.

    Mohawk is a good description for that ridge. Honestly, the pipe is even nicer than the pics.

    That's right. This is a public forum and we do not want search engines picking up on off topic words.

    Yes, I suppose it is "a nice piece of briar", but to me (and I stress to me) - a piece of briar that I can't really clench and enjoy smoking regularly will soon find a new home, or more likely not have been bought in the first place!. I don't have "show pipes", just smokers, each to his own - of course!, and YMMV etc., but I do believe a lot of the so-called 'boutique' pipe designer/carvers are more concerned with showcaseing their artistic abilities - than catering for the needs of tobacco lovers!. (sorry!)

    I will agree that it cannot be clenched, but it's not my every day pipe. I do smoke it and it fits very well in the hand. I very rarely hold a pipe in my mouth, but if that was the case, we'd all smoke corn cob pipes?! lol

    Now I purchase pipes based on size, but this was an impulse buy when I first started smoking. I was able to pick it up wholesale at a trade show and couldn't resist!

    Point taken! - but it is a joy when a carver produces something with beauty of form, balance and style - and still extremely smokeable , and I've seen plenty of documentary and photographic evidence that several such talented gents are among the ranks of this board!:th1:
