PostSubject: A VERY SPECIAL GIFT   Thu Jan 09, 2014 7:20 pm

For the past several days I've been seeing people sharing there recently purchased Growley pipes and I really fell in love with the Rhodesian so I decided to contact him. I asked Brian what the price of one would be with a diamond shank and he replied. I told him that I would have to get back with him after I'd saved a bit. Not wanting him to think I was just a cheap skate tight wad I explained why and no sooner did I click send I got a reply. He said he understood and that he had a Rhodesian left that wasn't sold yet and that he'd send it to me as a gift. I was left speechless but, I took him up on his very generous offer. Well, It came today and not only is Brian a very good and generous man, he's a great pipe carver. The pipe preforms wonderfully right from the very first light.

What a generous and Brotherly gesture from Brian. That is a great looking pipe and I'm sure it will be a great smoke. You better light that one up Ron, I want to hear you sing it's praises.  cheers

Beautiful Pipe Ron. Love the shape . A classic Rhodesian is one finest looking pipes made IMO. Kudos to Brian for giving such a generous gift.  Smile

Well done mate, it couldn't go to a more deserving person.
Is that a Cumberland stem Ron? Just wondering because i have an eye on another pipe with a stem very similar to that one.
Congrats Buddy. cheers

Ron, that pipe will soon become one of your favorites. Brian's work and attention to detail is second to none.

What a great place this forum is. Kindness and generosity knows no bounds!

I can guarantee you'll enjoy it from the very first smoke sir.
And if truth be known, I got a bit choked up to think someone would be this generous and kind
to ornery ole cuss like me.
