    My son was talking about wanting a new pipe. My question was "What kind?". He didn't have a clue. So, I mentioned the Peterson "Dracula" series. His interest was perked. I told him about them and his interest started to dwindle. "I thought it would be something ... different". Ok, we went with something .... different.

    It has a 1 and 7/8ths deep bowl by 3/4 inch. Over all 2 and 3/8ths high. 5 and 3/4 long. Wanted that dark, sinister look, oxeblood on smooth and black on rustication. Stem is pearlize acrylic. I'll stake my allowance on it that he's happy. This is one smoker he can sink his teeth into. Fangs for looking!

    I told him to never bring it out before the sun goes down or he'll ghost it. And to never smoke it after eating garlic toast. It would cause a bad reaction. But on a serious note. He fired it up and hasn't stopped smiling!

    Very Nice Basil:byg:

    That's a lot more like the stem that should come on the Dracula pipe's from Peterson

    I like that way better than the Petes. Better stem color and the dripping blood look is cool.

    Yep, I made that, it's a poker that I designed for my son, and I guess if you want one....PM me! I'll have to order more of the stems. But that shouldn't be a problem. Glad you like it.

    I LOVE IT!

    The "dripping blood" effect, and that stem are a great combination IMO. I really like contrasting colors when they are brought together to great effect, and this is a shining example of that. The black on the rustication was a good idea and really sets this apart from the crowd.

    Congrats on the new build, glad that your son is enjoying it. :cool:

    Is it dripping blood effect, or simply a pair of fangs? I see a pair of fangs.
    It is really cool when a dad makes a pipe for his son! I can only

    It's supposed to be fangs, but like everything in life. It's what you see! Got another to make for a guy at work. Might make the fangs skinner on his. But I do like the dripping blood thing. It's what ever the customer wants!
