    Hi All,

    It is rather lovely isn't it? I always saw Watson with a Bulldog somehow.

    He'd a Bohemian side to his character too - a eye for the ladies and a fondness for good wine and the turf (so much so that Holmes at one point had to keep his checque book locked away for him ) so when I first read the story where Holmes talked about amber mouhtpieces and how the London tobacconists could fake them, I'm sure he would have headed out and submitted to rapid onset PAD!

    Sas's done a great job with both the woodwork and the amber type stem and has brought the idea totally to life. I can't wait to lay hands on this beauty.

    What's to get smoked in it? 5 Brothers to break it in, then a trip down to Durham to stock up with Craven Aromatic - according to the best sources I can find - this was Watson's "Arcadia"

    And now to design the last one - Hannay's Rhodesian!

    Thanks Sas and best to all,

    Gerry

    You guys have really got to quit buying pipes from this guy. They're really overpriced, and they don't smoke that well. Seriously, you gotta be nuts to buy one of his. I mean, don't you guys need a Dunhill or something? You're using up all his briar.

    every good seven day set has eight pipes. can't forget your sunday night pipe. you know, the big one that smokes for two hours while you sit in an arm chair wishing you'd not eaten the WHOLE roast AND pudding. seven simply will not do ;)

    Sweet one Todd. I've always been partial to that stem material. I have seven pipes with real amber, a number with amberite, and five with the faux amber acrylic...all are favorites of mine for their almost antebellum flavor. The bulldog is probably my top classic shape, so yeah.....you nailed it! Congratulations Gerry....you chose wisely, sir!
