Does anyone have any experience with the Tinsky #12 catalog shape and the 2012 Christmas pipe? Size comparison, photos, smoking experience would be gladly appreciated!

What is the #12 catalog shape you speak of? Can't seem to find it on his website.

I have the '12 Christmas pipe shown here-



Just finished breaking this in and it's a WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!

I've 3 Tinsky's and they're all fine smoking machines.

The #12 can be found here...

http://ssl.cybersun.com/4Dscripts/webcatalog4disapi.dll/4dcgi/view?AMS-CAT012N~101661773~3

As you can see, it's a similar design (bent Rhodesian). But it's "less" bent (and possibly larger)?

I have a Tinsky #12, which is a squat, Danish-looking 1/4 bent Bulldog, and it's the best-looking, best-smoking pipe I own.

A great looking pipe wintermute. And very similar to my Christmas Blast.

I love mine, as I'm sure you do yours.

Smoke it in good health bro.

Bumping this thread to see if OP ever pulled the trigger on a Tinsky.

I have a chronic case of analysis paralysis on Tinsky pipes - there are 3 models that I am torn between - and "buy all three" isn't an option.

Christmas 2011

ASP POY 2012

BoB POY 2012

BoB POY 2012

I have these 2, and they are regular smokers for me. To wit-


Here is the '11 Xmas model I have-




And I was lucky to get the catalog shape on the BoB POY (yes, this exact one)-






Now, the ASP POY 2012 looks mighty fine too. But there appears to be 7 variations of them. Which did you fancy?

Me, I'd pick this one, only because I already have 2 dark blasts and a natural finish has always intrigued me-





And this one is very nice as well -




Can't go far wrong either way brother.

RR

I am partial to the blast finishes, esp the dark, but over time I could see having a tan blast in the stable. I have seen pictures in other threads of natural finishes adopting a honey gold look from the tobacco, much like a meerschaum.

Just got to finish the taxes to see how much Uncle Sam is going to claim and then slowly build up the funds to make a Tinsky happen.
