Two pipes that I finished some weeks ago. I didn’t have the chance to take proper photos of them until now. Being father of a baby is a hard job and doesn’t give you many free time.
The rhodesian is sandblasted and it was the first time that I tried to give some contrast to a sandblasted pipe.
Mouthpiece made from a german ebonite rod and spanish briar from Bruken. The insert in the stem is made from pink ivory.
The billiard is a comissioned pipe. I enjoyed a lot making this one. Inspired by the oval shanked shape 44 from the early years of Dunhill (this shape evolved towards a canadianish shank with the years, but during the early years was a billiard). For the dimensions it would be considered a group 4. For me, it’s so big as pipe.
Stem made from german ebonite rod and shank insert of pink ivory. Spanish briar.
