I have one on hand and four inbound. One is going to a friend as a gift. What I have is one Dunhill shell 5108, and will have three Ferndown 3*. I need to find one I can smoke aros out of some day that's not too expensive but a group 5 in size

Good stuff 'heel, I like those shapes as well.

I have several in that style but no convenient way to post pics. Bummer!



Cheers,

RR

Geez Todd, that one in the middle must be huge! What size is the chamber?

I've always considered the 120 to be one of the all-time classic shapes. I wish more makers included it in their arsenal.

It is huge. It's an inch across and near 3 deep. You could load a whole tin of flake in there I guess.

The 120 is very, very difficult to make for a few reasons. One is that it has an elongated and somewhat curved shank when done "well", like a mini-LC, and that takes quite a rare piece of briar. Two is that it's just a very hard shape to get right, it's a very big pipe, but a very lean one.

I did a 120ish pipe not too long ago....

They aren't terribly large, but as large as I have in the billiard shape.

These are my bent billiards over about a group 5 in size (please forgive the crappy phone pic).



The three on the left top to bottom:
-Old French LC style with horn stem (I sandblasted and added the silver band to this one)
-Jones reject, an attempt to copy a Dunhill LC
-LC style French pipe

Right side are all Peterson B28s:
-Peterson St. Patty's Day 2012
-Peterson 2004 POY
-Peterson 2008 POY
