    Well, I was a little busy today. Aint sure of what you call this shape, but it was hiding in this block of briar, just begging to get out! So I helped it,
    Deminsions:
    Length: 6 and 3/8"
    Widest point: 1 and 5/8"
    Chamber width: 3/4"
    chamber depth: 1 and 1/2"
    Weight: 2.03 oz.
    Stain: natural on rim, light brown rustication
    Stem: Pearlized Tan tapper Lucite
    And the pics:

    Personally not crazy about the color of the stem, but love the shape. So I'll see if it grows on me.
    Any thoughts, suggestions, pokes with a sharp stick?

    The shape is very nice, and while at first I was thinking of a different color stem as well, this one does give it a distinctive edge over the usual brown//amber/yellow stems that I initially was thinking of for it.
    It is quite nice overall:th1:

    Yeah,for some reason the stem just reminds me of an attractive woman in a negligee. Ah, omm, after thinking about it, think I like the stem after all!

    I think he needs to make a second one, so he can gaze reflectively at those legs, er, I meant stems..

    A beautiful pipe! And I agree with everyone else above, the stem not only works with it, but makes it shine! Hope it's a good smoker!

    I think the color choice with the stain and the stem is really sophisticated. Very classy pipe! :thu:
