Need an honest opinion on this pipe.

I experimented with my Dremmel on this piece of wood going from this which, I think is briar (?)

to this

I like the burnt/ cut look the Dremel left on the bowl top






I don't know if I should sent it to Walker Bros to dress it up with a fancy stem, or just toss it and chuck it up to experience. On the one hand it almost looks too "hand made" if you know what I mean; on the other, I kind of like its rugged, "I dont care if I lose it" look.
Your honest opinions please.

It's not bad, I actually kind of like the rugged/handmade look it has. It's got that, I needed a pipe and made this so I don't care what you think look. If it smokes good keep it, even if you only use it as a knockaround pipe.

I am not much into edges and corners so it doesn't appeal to me. I would carve some more to shape it better, the go lightly on the rustification. You have inspired me though as I have a block much like what you started with that I may just begin carving on now.

Well, thats all the time Im going to spend on it. It still looks a bit like a high school wood shop project, but it was a learning experience. If I wanted to really whoop it up I could have sanded it down much more finely.
