    For photos of beautiful pipes you wish you owned (or maybe do own, if you've got some beauties).

    Here's one by Hekthor Wiebe, a Canadian pipe-maker:

    ...and another: I know it looks like a robotic tortoise, but I love it.

    Looks like a weird-ass oom-paul.

    I think it's brilliant and looks awesome, but I see stuff like this and think it's more sculpture than pipe, even if it is useable. I'd like to own this and have it displayed but maybe not smoke with it.

    On the other hand, maybe the future of pipe smoking lies in more sculptural pipes.

    I'm looking through Mr. Wiebe's gallery and really love his work.

    Hekthor is active on another Pipe forum I am active on. He is a great guy and makes some really nice stuff. One of his pipes is on my PAD list for sure.

    Grant Batson is another fine carver of more modern artistic shapes

    Whenever I see this pipe, either in pictures or in the flesh, I get uncontrollable feelings of jealousy. One of these days you will wake up and it won't be there. With the current situation in your homeland I'm sure that motley gang you live with will be easily bribed. You have been warned. See you (and that pipe) on Saturday.

    I am sure they would! I will be keeping an eye on it from now on.... and an eye on you.

    Joking aside, this is the one pipe I most proud of and it means so much to me. If the house was on fire, I'd only grab this pipe and my Guild acoustic.

    Better grab some tobacco too! You'll feel a little silly sitting out on the curb, watching the house burn, with an empty pipe in your hand.

    All kidding aside bluepipe, that is one of the most beautiful pipes I've ever seen. Love the grain.
