Just finished this Straight Bulldog this morning and added to my website, it's made from Grecian briar with acrylic inlaid hand cut stem.
Measures 5-1/4"L x 1-3/4"W x 1-3/4"H with 7/8" chamber 1-3/4" deep weighing 60 grams. $165 + shipping
As always if one is not completely satisfied with the pipe they can send it back Unsmoked and Undamaged for a full refund of purchase price.  Wink
More photos can be seen on my site at rdpipes.briar.club SOLD!

Ron, what can I say....other than another outstanding pipe. I see Birdseye and flame grain and your inlay work on the stem makes everything come together perfectly. I don't need another pipe, however one day I will purchase another from you. The Devil Anse you made for me is in my daily rotation and one of my top three favorite pipes. Believe me, that's saying allot about the craftsmanship and quality of the materials you use. Always a pleasure seeing your craft, thank you.

Well, Ron done axed me my thoughts on this pipe (yes, I'm the one who stole it) upon receiving it. I would say that the bulldogs in my collection are the most eye-arresting pieces on my two racks, and that this pipe is the prettiest and has by far the best workmanship of the bunch. The "rings" are flawless, for example--something I've never seen on a bulldog. The most striking thing for me, though, is the way it feels in the hand, the balance, the proportions. The pipe just begs to be smoked, and smoked a lot, and I intend to indulge her. The problem is, what should I choose for tobacco?

I knew I wanted this pipe as soon as I laid eyes on it--so what seems strange to me about this pipe is that it violates many of "Rick's Rules" for bulldogs. Rule #1: No saddle bits. Rule #2: shank must taper slightly, increasing in size from stem to bowl. Rule #3: Bowl must tilt forward slightly. So this pipe has a saddle bit, parallel shank, and the bowl is erect as the Sphinx. Dunno, the interplay of angles or something makes it all work, and I love the damn thing. It's a Jungian gestalt type of thing, ain't it? The pipe is greater than the sum of its parts, in other words, and maybe I don't know so much. Rick's Rules need amending or tossing. And this pipe will henceforward be my Gestalt pipe. Thanks, Ron. It will be smoked tonight. So how will it smoke? Ask me 50 bowls from now, but I have a hunch it will smoke Just Fine. Wink

From your first response to Ron's posting of this stunning pipe I knew you were the one that purchased it. Enjoy for many years to come. I'm sure it will be a superb smoker. CONGRATULATIONS cheers cheers cheers
