Finished this Partially Blasted Tall Rhody this morning, it's made from Grecian Briar with a exotic wood shank inlay and a hand cut Honey Cumberland stem.
It measures 5-1/4"L x 2-1/4"H x 1-1/2"W with a 7/8" chamber 1-3/4" deep and weighs in at 60 grams. I'm asking $225 + shipping.
For more photos please visit my site rdpipes.briar.club

PIPE is SOLD!

Stunning. One of the best Rhodies I've ever seen. Great looks and bowl capacity. Price is better than right. If I had made a pipe like this, I don't think I could sell it. Too heart-rending.

(I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I hadn't purchased my last from you, the large one. Can you believe I haven't smoked it yet? But I will! I will!)

Hey, Ron--if it matters, your top website link is reversed and doesn't work.

Ron, definitely a tall Rhody and a beauty at that. Your designs and craftsmanship is second to none! Make a few pipes and call Chip from Smokingpipes, he will help you market your Artisan pipes.



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

When it comes to you sir, I can believe anything......and I've done the same myself, in fact I still have a pipe I bought new a few years ago I haven't smoked yet.
Thank you sir and I caught that and changed it, thank you again! Wink

Thank you LC!
And I don't feel I'm good enough to be shilling my wares to SP, nor do I make enough for it to be worthwhile to them.
I'm a guy that makes pipes and wish to keep it that way. If one day I become somebody fine but, we're not looking to the future, only today.

Ron, that's sure a looker of a pipe. If it hasn't gone before my tax check arrives, I'll claim it. Though I'm sure it won't last that long. Grrr slow tax department, the money should've been here two days ago. 

Cheers

Thank you Tim but, as my prices have gone up a bit I think you'll find it still here in a few days. Wink

Ron, also need to say your blasting technique is second to none. It truly looks like a sea shell and very tactile. The contrast of the top portion which is smooth and a different finish is the perfect compliment. And I'm a huge fan of the yellow streaked Cumberland material you use so effectively for the stem. Think you might be the only one I've ever seen to use this. It's a hallmark on your pipes these days and very distinctive!

Ron, you clearly have your signature style and it's written all across this fine piece. Someone is going to be a very happy camper!

Timbo you better step up pronto, mate!

I love you



Cheers,

RR

Thank you very kindly Rande I never realized that there wasn't many using this Cumberland. I like it because of the color and the diversity of streaks through it. Wink

Gotta say I'm mighty glad I managed to snaffle this pipe up. It's even more stunning in the hand than the photos do justice. 

As soon as I saw it, I thought it would be a monster English smoker and am glad to be proved right. Do yourself a favour and grab the bulldog Ron just posted, as brother to this pipe I'm sure it'll be a fabulous smoker too. 

Cheers

WOW!

Glad you snagged this Tim. Great to know it went to a brother here.

Now you'll see why Ron's pipes are special!

Cool

I saw that pipe when it was first posted. It is, indeed, a looker! Nice work and good luck to the lucky owner.
