    Is that a 191? I like the shape of that. Enjoy!

    Nice. I'm a sucker for the bulldog shape, even though I don't yet own one.

    Yes, it's the 191 shape in a silk brune finish which is waxed rather than varnished. Some of the 191s are only 4 1/2" long. This one was 5" long. The length, finish, grain, quality of the briar (I haven't detected any fills or pits in it) made it irresistable to me.

    Yeah, she got a bit of Skiff in her last night. It was a great combination.

    I really like the squat, bent, bulldog shape. Nice score!

    Nice, I'm a fan of the 1/8th or "slightly bent" bulldog style.

    Very Good looking.The rings on the bowl are just the right accent. Glad I got to see it.

    Nice pipe. My favourite shape.
    Condolences in advance. You'll find that the way that shape feels in hand and especially where your thumb rests will keep you looking for more bent bulldogs.
