|Signature, Cassanova "Superia"
I just love the flowing lines in a pipe and I named this shape Liquid Bulldog while I was working on it becouse the lines just flow like water from one shape to next.
It is rather large pipe and chubby at that, hence the Bulldog part of the name. The stem is hand cut Cumberland and balances the pipe nicely.
The grain is really something on this pipe and the large surface of the right side shows it best, but the grain is stunning all around. And there are plenty of birds eyes on the top as well, so your eyes will have a feast on this pipe :-)
The shape fits very well into my left hand, the thumb slots into the curved recess and the pipe is easy to hold and well balanced for its size.
The tobacco chamber is coated with my Charcoal/Pumice fromula for extra protection and ease of break-in.
Each time I carve of of the pipes with flowing shape I really enjoy the experiance and promiss myself to cut some more, but as you can imagine the complex shape takes lots of time, but I'll do my best to experiment some more in the future.
So what to say apart that this is stunning pipe and you need to see it in person, to hold it, to appreciate it fully, and no doubt to fell in love with it...
