While having a cup of afternoon coffee and checking out the forum, I realised that I haven't shown these 2 yet. They are not on my website yet, so please contact me by PM or email for more photos and information if you're interested.
Beautiful pipes, Charl... that second one is exceptionally striking.
Still waiting for a Bing though....
"People are not made better by a briar. An idiot before smoking a pipe is still an idiot after smoking a pipe, they're just more likely to speak less drivel with something in their mouth. For that, all society should be grateful."
Thanks, gents. The second one is stained with what I call the "Andreas Special". And the stem ring is actually kudu horn, that for some reason showed up white in the photos. In real life it, well, looks like horn!
