    This one's pretty wild. Not exactly a clencher. http://www.smokershaven.com/dunhill-estate-pipe-bruyere-calabash-hpl-28.aspx

    I like it! I'd buy it if it didn't cost more than anything I've ever owned.

    I'm not too keen on how it looks, but I bet it's a damn good smoke.

    As it's a "Calabash" I assume you load the top bowl, then when you draw the smoke swirls around in the lower bowl. Someone posted a link to a pipe maker who made something (that looks) very similar in principle, out of a single solid piece of briar.

    Two "new" pipe arrived today from the bay, one no name from London, England (very Dunhillish) and one Fortnum's Windward, both are in pretty good shape, just a bit of stem oxidation, here a pre-clean up shot...

    Will post again once I get them cleaned up.

    Okay, it's been 21 minutes, what's taking so long?

    I'm intrigued by the Windward; is there calibration on the side? Are there different settings for different wind speeds? I'd love to see some contemporaneous advertising. Anybody care to venture a guess what the fellow in the advert looks like?

    It's not a clencher??!!??!? Huh???

    If a pipe has a stem that ain't made from the same material as the bowl, it's a clencher. :ohyh:

    OK first I want to apologize to Ted Vig for posting this in his thread, I got hasty and thought I was in the main pipes forum, OK I got them cleaned up, they turned out pretty nice IMO, the bird's eye on the Windward is amazing, and it looks like it may have smoked only a couple times if that...

    Boy, they cleaned up nicely. That grain is gorgeous and the two-tone contrasts and enhances the bowl.

    On or off, huh . . . I guess that makes sense, do let us know how the design smokes in both its iterations. I doubt there's an instructional video so you may have to make one.

    I'd totally get this if I could get more bowls for it...
