After all day work on this small size Freehand which was going to be high class "Signature" pipe, I did hit a sand pit :-( However this pipe has a simply stunning straight grain to be ignored or sandblasted. As you know I do not fill my pipes with a putty of any sort, if there is a small sand pit, it is stabilized, so it will be as hard as the briar and smooth. I do put strict limitation on what size and shape of sand pit I will allow in my pipes, so please do not worry about this one too much. As the pipe will develop darker patina, the pit might disapear altoghether.

The straight grain is even all around the bowl, and the shank extention is from Corugara Burl, and the tamper from the same Corugara Burl is included in the set. The pipe is fitted with black Acryli stem with the white Delryn tenon and the bowl has Charcoal/Pumice coating inside it for an extra protection and ease of break-in.

If you can live with the sand pit, this pipe is a genuine bargain. I have set the price just bellow the "Signature" price range, plus the cost of the tamper.

Light as a feather, exiting straight grain, shank extention and matching tamper...all in all beautiful evening pipe

Not wanting to comment on the pipe but rather ask you about how I buy it.
I cant see a way to contact you directly - I guess this is the way.
Please reserve this pipe for me and contact me regarding a price.
