This pipe is a large freehand almost Buldog shaped and is fitted with hand cut Avrylic stem in dark blue with white line running trough it and white Delrin tenon.I did enjoyed carving this pipe and had a hard time at the same time as number of pits apeared at various stages of carving. Being large grooved pipe, once you start cutting the grooves there is very little space to avoid sand pits and at the end I gave up on the spotless clean pipe and accepted the fact that they are there. I did stabilazied them with glue and in my opinion they do not distract the attention from the pipe, the shape and hand cut Acrylic stem will take your eyes elswhere. But if you are the person who just can not stand sand pits, do not buy this pipe. I did adjust the price accordingly and I hope someone there will appreciate my two days of work which went into this creation...

Dear Mr. Zeman,
I just wanted to tell you that I recently purchased the Trilobite pipe on eBay. I am extremely pleased with the pipe and I cannot believe that the former owner would let it go. It is a great pipe to display, but it also smokes very nicely (I don't believe in buying pipes to impress people. Pipes are meant to be smoked!) To be honest this is the first time I have run across one of your pipes, but I intend to check your web site regularly. All your pipes demonstrate an artistic sense as well as wonderful craftsmanship. Perhaps I will be lucky enough to own another in the near future.
