    Oh, I was just talking about the pipe. I thought that was what was being called unusual. My bad.

    Looks cool but you had better have strong jaw muscles and sound teeth.

    The beautiful grain is what makes the pipe work for me. If it was even partially sandblasted or rusticated it would ruin it for me. The plateau top doesn't count though. :D

    That is a great looking pipe!

    That is a nice looker there. I happen to love the "bee" stem a lot (Recently saw for the first time on a Chacom number that is sold out most places) Have your friend send you some Westvleteren to wash down the tobacco! Enjoy in good health!

    I agree. It's the knobbly plateau over the bridge contrasted with the smooth (and grain) underneath that really does it for me.

    Thank you for your warm compliments! I can't wait to hold it in my hand (and test - prove my jaw muscles).
    Jfro: I believe it is the Chacom Maya series?

    Beautiful bridge! I love that shape, and have carved a few over the years. That one is very well done...great use of the plateau and grain. Absolutely love the stem! Had to be a fun project just creating that.
    Yeah...the aren't normally clenchers.....LOL
