    Just got this in the post yesterday, and I'm in love with it. Perfect draw, weight, feel... and it's beautiful. It's a bit heavy to hold in the teeth, but I really don't care. I will be adding more of these to my collection, I'm sure. For some reason I'm really into American carvers at the moment, so I see a Tinsky (maybe two) in my near future as well. Oh, sorry about the crap photos... taken with my phone. My camera is currently out of commission.

    I gotta say, a quick glance at your topic title leads one to all the wrong conclusions. :whistle:

    Hah! To be fair, the wierd-factor would not have lessened if the topic title was: My new Wiley Pipe. Perhaps the double take would have been more noticable if that were the case?


    I forgot to add to the OP that the pipe does indeed look to be a nice aquisition.

    lol, I didn't even think about the title of the post before I sent it off. Now that you guys mention it, maybe I should have made it something like "My new Randy Wiley Pipe" or "Randy Wiley Freehand"... something like that. Meh....

    Hmmm... you used to live in Memphis. I used to live in Memphis.

    You have two Wiley pipes. I have two Wiley pipes.

    If we keep this up, we may have to explore the possibility that we live in alternate universes. Like Spock from this universe and Spock from the anti-matter universe. One of us will have to sport a goatee if it's true.

    Back to the subject... Yes, you will love your Wiley. Mine are my favorites in looks and operation.

    Erick, that Wiley is a fine one and will probably end up being one of your most cherished. Randy does great work! My wife bought me a small Wiley Freehand in '89 (maybe about 3.5" long and a Dunhill size 1-2-ish bowl) it's a beaut! Great little 15 minute smoke. Although when people see me smoking it, they think I'm smoking the "other tobacco" in it. I don't care. I've owned Wileys for nearly 20 years, 3 Boston Bridges, several Uniques, and several double and single digits, a big ole rusticated galleon calabash (huge!). Great pipes! You won't be disappointed. Randy uses oil cured mediteranean plateau briar I believe and they smoke with somewhat of a "nutty" flavor. Although very subtle, toby just seem so smoke and taste better? in a Wiley. You done real good! Enjoy!

    :velho:

    Wiley is my fav. American pipemaker . His finnish is mirror like . Oil cured briar . If he didnt make a **** load of pipes and just made 150 or so they would a big deal and super pricey . Lucky for us he makes a ton of pipes and he sells them reasonable !!! Good score pal ! :velho:

    That was one thing that I really liked about Randy. Granted, some of his pipes are out of my price range completely... Most of them are so damn reasonable. The only other pipe maker that I've seen like that (wonderful quality and great price) is Mark Tinsky.

    EDIT: I do of course mean aside from the pipe makers on this forum. ;)

    You may want to include the word "North" in there, as in "North American carvers".... else, some bigfooted neanderthal may feel hurt https://pipesmokersforum.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/cigar.gif
