OK we have resolved that AJ picked up a beaut. No argument there.

As to nomenclature, now you can't tell the players without a program. Cherrywood? As Stossel says, "Give me a break."

Go back a few years and there is no argument. It is a bent poker. So, why come up with Cherrywood. Doesn't even save letters or add information. In fact, it makes things more confusing.

Looks like some marketing genius compared a pipe those
Cherrywood clunkers and said "Wow, that bent poker looks just like a Cherrywood." It is time to point a finger at such goings on and you know which one.

IT IS A BENT POKER! cheers bounce  cheers 

But, if you have to call it a Cherrywood to be oh so avant garde, it is OK by me. 5)

GBD didn't even list a "Cherrywood" in their shape lists, only a "Poker" so seems to me since it's a GBD you would call it what they did, a Poker ! Kinda like if one owned what others would call a bent Bulldog w/diamond shank made by Dunhill that pipe would be a bent Rhodesian as THAT'S what Dunhill called it. Or as I have, several pipes made by Charatan that they called a "Banker" while the SAME shape is called a "Diplomat" by GBD, Parker and BBB. It's not rocket science, just pipes Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
