Both Jose and Chris make amazing pipes. Chris's silver work is fantastic. Not many carvers delve into that in the way Chris has, recently. He even paneled one side of a recent pipe in silver. It was striking.
Jose recently did a freehandish/blowfishy thing with a black and yellow contrast stain. The finish was spectacular.

I've admired Chris' work for years. The attention to the detail of every aspect of crafting a pipe is never less than absolute, structurally as well as esthetically. If money were no object I'd own a number of his pipes. But he's beyond my pay grade.
