    I normally like traditional English shapes, but the Satou straight Dublin and bent bulldog posted on Smoking Pipes today knocked me out. Perhaps because they are subtle variations on classic shapes, and so well executed.

    Smio Satou makes some beautiful pipes. There was one slick little brandy... man, I can't even remember how many people came to me and said "Oh can you make one like this?". I got close, but his shaping is just so supple.

    I was just looking at that bulldog myself Ruff. It is purdy. I wouldn't pay a grand for it but it is beautiful. That Dublin below it is sexy too.

    A grand is a pretty decent set of tires.

    The only way I'll ever have anything close to that is to learn how to make it myself.

    I should live so long.

    I like his story, and I like his mechanics, but he's no Tokutomi.

    Gorgeous. I particularly like the bamboo shanks. And I'd like it even more if I had $1,000+ to blow on a pipe!
