OK - order placed. Finished item should be epic. I think I'll wait on the description til I can do a photo unveil. I'm guessing I'll have it in hand in 1 - 2 weeks...just guessing on that as certain steps in the overall process require that it be shipped out and then back to Mark. Heh, heh. Wait for it.


Interesting sidebar: during my conversations with Mark I discovered that Rad Davis is currently doing the blasts on his pipes with that finish. Certainly can't fault that as 'the best' available.

That's been my understanding. Good to see that Rad is still active in pipemaking to some degree. No wonder Mark's pipes always have the finest blasts! And all of mine are.

So you asked for a B&T then Dave? Can't wait to see that one.

Oh no.....no Black & Tan for this kid! Thou jumpest to erroneous conclusions. I can't possibly imagine what would even ever give you that idea! Goodness! It's just crazy!


Heh, heh, heh.


Hey! What am I laughing about. This is like more than six months of my pipe fun budget...which is my only fun budget. Ouch. But a GOOD ouch.


(Note: As an homage to the ultra classic Dunhill #48 Saddle Bulldog I decided to go with a very basic feel. But while the look will be basic, the quality and craft will be absolutely top drawer. It should be a real stunner.)

TAMPER THING HERE



Would you like a matching tamper for your 2015 BoB POY?


Go to the link below and scroll down to the photo of the 4 tampers.


http://www.amsmoke.com/XMAS%20PIPES/13_XMAS_PIPE.html


When I ordered my 2015 BoB POY I mentioned the tampers I had noticed to Mark. I asked if he still did them. He responded that he could indeed do matching tampers...$25 for those ordering a pipe, or someone who has ordered a pipe (I assume that means like in the past)...$50 for new customers that are not ordering a pipe, etc. -  AND instead of stamping it with the Christmas thing he could use the BoB stamp and the year on it...voila...a BoB PIPE AND TAMPER SET...retro to past orders!!!


Question: how fast do you think my additional $25 hit his mailbox. To me, this is a solid Value Added thing.


DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

Now that's a shape I could get used to! (Understatement of course; bulldogs & rhodesians are the overwhelming majority of my stable. I type this as I enjoy a bowl of JKP in my Northern Briars premier bulldog.)

Link to Pictorial List of Finishes

http://www.amsmoke.com/XMAS%20PIPES/13_xmas_finishes.html

Note: the photos are from the 2009 Christmas Pipe series and all finishes might not still be available...but photos do provide a clear and accurate view of possibles. If you like one...can't bear to live another day without it...email Mark and find out if it can be done.

And don't forget to order your matching BoB POY tamper!!!

Stone the crows, I'm in love. That is simply stunning PD. Coral - what a finish!

You need one of these mate. Mark's work is simply among the best there is.

Well, your horses will have to be held, he's on a fishing trip til the 29th!


At least that's what his website says.


But I can't imagine he would be unable to do that stain. I wouldn't worry. 'Less he falls into the river.  Rolling Eyes

Yes, as far as I can talk for Mark.

I know mine and the one Brewdude ordered were specific as to finish, stain, stem material, etc. He sent the strummel for mine off to Rad Davis for sandblasting on Monday, choosing a piece of Briar specifically per my request for a deep blast.. The one smooth one and the coral rusticated were the only two pre made as samples for the Board to review. The others he has made one by one following orders from members...these are 100% a hand made to your spec item. Pretty cool?

So he's back and active. Mine is done and set to go out tomorrow. Dark Blast finish with the Amber Tortoise stem. With just a little twist! Heh, heh.

I got an email few days ago that my pipe was finished. Just waiting on the silver work for the epic hinge lid (lol I wish). Getting antsy over here.

Antse is hardly the word. I got the whole Japanese Drum Corps going like crazy...background to my pee pee dance.

Below please enjoy the Drum Corps and cast Pee Pee Dancers from my favorite Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman movie...I don't know why, but it just cracks me up. Here you have a pretty classic Samurai movie in period Japan and at the end they throw in this dance number and the whole cast joins in - Busby Berkeley style. It's so WEIRD! I LOVE IT.

And so, I proclaim it the Official BoB Pee Pee Dance. What the heck.
