    Here is my second RM Davison pipe!

    I asked Bob for a squat / stubby Rhodesian done with a black & tan or black & oxblood finish. The grain turned out to be killer birdseye, so the decision was made to go with a light natural stain. Always trust the pipemaker, he knows what's best! :eek:hyeah:

    Here she is fellas.

    I'm sure this will smoke like a champ.
    Throw Bob a PM and have him make one up for yourselves! It's always better to support board members with your commission projects. Keeps $$$ here as opposed to some big companies pocket. Besides, you'll ALWAYS get exactly want you want. A "win / win" for everyone. :xd:

    Hi All,

    Very very nice pipe, love the colour and love the stem material. There is something special about having a pipe made for you as I well know! Many happy years with her,

    gerry

    I love the pipe and the finish! Still being an FNG, what is Bob's screen name on PSF?

    Also, please tell us what leaf you decide to christan her with!

    Congrats!
    Brad

    Dover, thanks for posting about the pipe. Hopefully it will smoke as good as it looks. I would suspect it should... I have not had a bad smoking piece of briar from Mimmo (as long as I do my part :velho: ).

    Thanks to the rest for your comments about the pipe. This one was fun to make. I like the look of the chubby pipes... especially in the Rhodesian style. This was my second attempt at this for Dover... the first was morphed into a cup n saucer/Rhodesian/chubby-with-a-thin-shank due to the fickleness of the briar gods (on my web page)...

    For the record... there is no stain on this pipe (except for the black in the rings). That is the natural color of this briar piece coming through - only wax has been applied to the pipe.

    :whistle:

    Happy Puffing :bing:

    I really love this shape. Reminds me of a different pipe that was recently out of my league. When I get some cash in the PAD fund I just may want a clone.

    Very nice! Great idea to leave it unstained.... that should color nicely over the years!
