Since I am unable to attend the Chicago show, I didn't want to feel left out on the PAD fun. †As a result, I commissioned Gustavo Cuhna (Martelo Pipes) to make me this petite bent billiard with mammoth tusk accent. †It is only 4 1/4" long, and a group 2 size chamber, per my specifications.

The pipe will fly with him to Chicago, and he will send it to me from there. †It will be my second pipe by Gustavo and I anticipate that it will be an exceptional smoker. †He is a great craftsman, and does some tremendous blast work. †If you are not familiar with him, I highly recommend that you check out his work.




This will help me relieve my PAD in lieu of being able to attend the show. Very Happy

best,

Loren

I like almost any pipe with that 120 vibe. I haven't seen a pipe that small in a while. Is that really a 2? Or is it actually smaller? Like that stem a lot, but I'd be too worried to mark it to enjoy it.

Yes, this is my first in this particular shape. I believe it's pretty darn close to a group 2-Only a 16mm chamber diameter (.63") and 38mm depth (1.49").

I love the look of it, and I'll have no problem putting it to good use without fear. In fact, I suspect that it will be filled and smoking within minutes of receiving it. Very Happy

Thanks for the kind words.

Gotta be one of the finest blasts I've ever laid eyes on (or eye, in my case)! Love the stem as well.

Good stuff Loren!

Cool


Cheers,

RR
