I especially like that first cob. Nice stem. Did you blast that horn, or use a nail pack type of tool? It' s good. BTW, good tobacco there.

Thanks! I like it too. The horn was dremmeled with an engraving tool. The Lat Fk is something I reluctantly tried, but found it very much to my liking. Not near the amount of Latakia one might assume by the name.

Cool stuff Ozzie. You sure have that horn style down pat. Ask me how I know! Wink

And that's a very handsome Prince. What wood is it?

Cool


Cheers,

RR

That' true, the Lat flake is very Virginia-ish.

Nice pipes. I didn't know you could use osage orange wood for pipes. The only thing I
know about osage orange is the balls are good to keep mice out of your garage! But, if you leave them too long, they rot and smell!!

It makes excellent bows as well, among other things. Wool dyes too

That' a lot of tedious Drexel work. Got more patience than I.  Shocked

Some nice carvings there Ozzie and loving the new cob stems, the second reminds me of the Old Dominion cobs and their reed stems. 

Get better mate.

Nice work Wiz! But I got to tell ya, thinking of "Frakencobs" and seeing that Sawzall blade next to the Falcon nearly gave me a heart attack Laughing
