Well after almost two days of carving and having big plans for this pipe I hit number of small sand pits and the high end "Signature" idea went out of the window...bugger !!!
This pipe has some beautiful grain and birds eyes I come across for long time and had to be downgraded for number of small pits. I did stabilize them and they do not detract from overall beauty of this pipe and the final price reflects this.
Nevertheless this must be the best pipe for the price on my site right now and if no one wants it, I'll be very happy to keep it mor myself.
Carved from Italian Plateaux it is light for its size, double stained with Orange over Walnut and fitted with acrylic stem with White Delryn tenon and New Zealand Greenstone band.
So very exiting day in my workshop, but you can't win them all...at the end I did enjoy it despite the final outcome and hope one of you will enjoy it as well and appreciate my effort...
