Today s work consists of a couple special orders and a new danish bent ball for the web store.First is a one star Christmas pipe in a new Gold-Red Pristine finish:
The next two pipes were carved by Dave Nestor. The first is a poker for Max Fubar of ASP :
The second pipe is a canted billiard made from some samples of Algerian briar I recently received. This is the third pipe I ve carved using it. The first one is being tested by Jim Beard and I m hoping he will do a review of the pipe/briar after he s gotten a few more smokes under it s belt. This one is for Harold Suretsky, a known Algerian maven, who should be able to tell me if this wood tastes as good as the older stock. The third is a billiard that will hopefully be blasted shortly to see how it blasts.
The last pipe is another in the series of Danish bent balls I ve done in the last few days. It s available on the web catalog as
