Mail Call, or should I say Land Ho!

I had asked J. Everett to make a pipe for me, and he happily agreed to do so and today she made land.

I wanted a straight pipe and one of a shape I also did not have, we settled on a cutty.

J. is great...he picked my brain about what exactly I wanted.

He takes great care to make sure things were just right and included me in the process by doing so, a lot of fun

I wanted a pipe inspired by those colors you used to see in the 40’s and 50’s and 60’s at the beaches in Florida..a little retro.

I mentioned that most cutty pipes I see are all a bit stodgy, I wanted something fun and with a little eye candy.

He already knew about my like of colorful pipes, so I just told him....”go nuts, I trust ya"

This thing is wonderful, it is light, has a nice chamber depth and the length is just right...feels great in the hand and clenches wonderfully, cannot wait for it to cool off outside and go for a first smoke.

Thanks again J...



And here she is...

Beautiful pipe. Cramps did a pipe for me and it has a similar blue Juma stem (I think that's what it is).Mine is a straight rusticated billiard. It's a smaller pipe that I easily throw in my pocket and take with me when I go out for walks. Enjoy.

I got to have the first smoke last night and was taken back as to how well I liked it.
Quite a departure from my other pipes.

I think that might have been my 15th or 16th pipe, can't remember. Actually, 21st, I looked back. And my first actual billiard.

I don't pick up many of these really old ones, but I have a weakness for meerschaum and real amber stems. Both came with their original cases.

WDC Meerschaum with amber stem, probably 1870-85.
CPF Briar with amber stem - late 1800's?

Wow these look hardly smoked!

Do you suppose that could be the original finish on the CPF "Griffon" pipe?

Yes, I feel certain it's the original finish - it took a lot of beeswax and polishing to bring it back. The CPF internals were very nasty, but by the end of last night I had a clean, pleasant smoke. I decided only to do the externals on the meerschaum and don't plan to smoke it.
