    Very nice. I especially like the one on the bottom.

    I'm very fond of my Stanwell bent bulldog and I'd love to get a Peterson silver spigot bent bulldog.

    Haha, OMG - I don't know why but I forgot to mention my most beloved bulldog - the Tinsky Xmas 2011 Tanblast.

    I guess I prefer bulldogs that have a low profile better than ones that "stand up." :thu2:

    I tend to gravitate toward them, also.

    Bulldogs/rhodesian are my favorite shape of pipe. Just got a Peterson 80s Estate for a steal on ebay. First Pete and it looks awesome. Haven't smoked it yet, cause I still need to clean it up a bit.

    I do get that sense of deja vu for some reason. Two older Kaywoodie bent bulldogs:

    I have a few Peterson 80s. Still my favourite shape, they just feel so right in hand.

    Hmmm. I have a pipe from Invicta with a square shank that was marketed as a Rhodesian.

    As I understand the nomenclature, Rhodesian is the generic term for a pipe with that distinctive bowl shape, while Bulldog is supposed to be the diamond shank variation.




    Don't quote me on this....there are as many opinions as there are Rhodesian/Bulldog aficionados.

    Haha, I love all the confusion Bulldog v. Rhodesian. They don't make it easy, do they? From what I've seen, the most common definition is bulldog=diamond shank, Rhodesian=round shank. However, I've seeen bulldogs are straight and Rhodesians are round, and less commonly I've seen bulldogs have the taller bowl/crown and Rhodesians have the shorter squat bowl/crown. Then there are the ones that manufacturers seem to randomly call one or the other even though they fit all the definitions of the other better. Confused yet?

    I usually just go with the most common definition, bulldogs have the square/diamond shank, Rhodesians have the round shank. The bulldog (using that defintion), both straight and bent, is definitely in my top 4 shapes (the others are the author, the bent billiard, and the straight apple) with the bulldog usually being on top of the others (if just barely) and no matter my mood it always seems to be in the top 2.

    Hmm, I think I'll have to dig up some photos in a bit, and make some more for my newer (to me) bulldogs.

    For more fun re. bulldog v. Rhodesian, here is what GL Pease has to say: http://www.glpease.com/Pipes/Shapes/Bulldogs.php
