I'm starting to really like these 6 sided shanks! A beautiful pipe and beautiful shape. There are a couple of small surface flaws though, but I just could not get myself to sandblast this. Therefore the heavily reduced price. Somebody is going to get a bargain.
Here are the specs:

Grade: Goussard
Stummel: briar
Height of bowl: 45mm
Depth of tobacco chamber: 37mm
Bowl size: 19mm
Length of pipe: 151mm
Stem material: ebonite
Stem insert: Protea nitida
Weight: 59g
Bowl coating: dark as the night
Price: $265 (international shipping included)

It is not up on my website yet, so please PM or email me should you be interested.

Nice shape and well thought out. Also, that piece of briar has some great Birdseye. You did right by not sandblasting that beauty.



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

I always feel bad sandblasting a pipe just because of a little flaw. I know that is the way that most makers do it, but briar is a piece of nature. That is how it was made. It would, of course, have been marvelous if there were no flaws. But that's the way we are as well, isn't it? Each one of us with a flaw here and there! Wink
Thanks for the kind words.
