After couple of weeks of handling this particular block I finally cut into it and here is the result and I must say that I'm more then happy with the finished pipe.

I call it horned shape pipe, but some of you might see it more like axpick with a twist and we might both be right.

The smooth finished pipe despite few tiny sand pits, the cross grain and the birds eyes on its front face a simply awesome. The stain is black over the natural Plateaux to archive the finish I wanted and matching stem is hand cut from fine German Ebonite.

The bowl is coated with my Pumice/Charcoal formula for extra protection and ease of break-in.

This pipe will stand out in any collection and should smoke like a dream...

This is the third pipe I've purchase from Jan. It is a truely stunning block of briar. The pictures simply don't do it justice.
It smokes like a dream as do his previous two pipes.
It is the pride of my collection and I feel like I'm on cloud 9 with it between my lips puffing away, a copy of Pipes & Tobaccos magazine or the latest issue of The Pipe Collector in front of me to read, and a "beverage" at my side.
Jan's pipes make life better!!!
