As most are aware my collection is rather ecclectic. There are a few of which I have 5 or more from the same maker, Becker and Dunhill from out of the country, JT Cooke and Trever Talbert for USA makers.
This next pipe is by far the most whimsical pipe from Trever Talbert that I own, not only does it have a wild demeanor it sports a gorgeous briar bowl with outrageous straight grain on both side and equally outrageous birdseye on the top. The center of the pipe marries Meerschaum to the bowl and lower portion of the pipe, my memory on the bottom wood is failing me but I believe it is Boxwood, if Trever gets on I'm sure he'll set the record straight.
Anyhow like all of his pipes it is a smoker of the highest quality and none that I own will leave my collection. Smoking some Cracker Jack because it tastes so good in this heat and having no problem keeping it smokey.
