My new found shape love are these pipes.  I have been calling them bent Dublins.  Is my ID correct, or are they another shape that this newb just doesn't know about?

the two in the middle might be more of a pot shape, but maybe it is an eye of the beholder thing?

Really, they all carry characteristics of different shapes. In the first, I see tulip as well as Dublin. Second and third, I see pot with a hint of Dublin or vice versa. The fourth is more Dublin than anything.

There is a definite flare from the bottom to the top of the bowls in all 4 examples. All 4 have a very thick bowl wall at the top. The pic does not show the flare in the center two very well.

They all have similarities to me, and I can relate because I particularly favor rhodesian-esque and dublin-esque shapes more than anything nowadays whenever I look at pipes. Every other shape just doesn't appeal to me as much, though lovats have known to tickle my fancy a time or two.

I'd call them Dublins (the bottom one definitely). I have a Savinelli the shape of the third one down, and I've always called it a Dublin.

I have often heard of this shape referred to as an author. Just my two cents worth. The main thing being, if that's what floatin' yer boat lately, smooth sailing to you!!

This is what an Author shaped pipe looks like. The Sav shape is often refred to as an Italian Dublin/Pot and it has an ovoid shaped shank in section, NOT diamond shaped as a Bulldog or Dunhill Rhodesian does  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

I've two 316's, and they're both great smokers. Not expensive either.
