I am finalizing my order with Ian Walker and I have the option to add a silver band for 15. It will be a group 5 Rhodesian( bent bulldog) with a tapered green Cumberland stem. Will be Bruyere premium finish. I do like the ferndowns with the silver band, but I also like the dunhill 5108 without the silver band.

On a pipe as big as that, I think a silver band will show up nicely. It will also strenghten the shank. Go for it!

With silver = flash, w/out = understatement. What kinda person are you? Twisted Evil

I've always thought Rhodesians with those military stems looked ridiculously cool with silver, otherwise I could take it or leave it.



I had to go hunt what his looked like... I'd go without, but as Monbla pretty much implied, it's your pipe bubba

Talked with Ian Walker and he said the band was a good idea, so I am getting the band.
