    Another very beautiful pipe Hekthor!! I am really excited about getting mine done. Need to PM you so we can get that ball rolling. Especially since this is #41 .
    Editing and deleting are two different things. You edit a whole by deleting a part; you cannot edit a part by deleting it. Webster can clear this up for you.

    LOVELY work.

    For fun, here is a Ropp Record. About 6" tall, cherrywood body, briar shank, "plastic" fitting and bit. Not sure of when these were produced; I'd say late 1950s -60s. This one un-smoked and currently as found. Could do with a polish.

    Just saw that the image uploads didn't seem to have worked. My comment makes little sense without them. The bowl design is quite similar to the Ropp. Plus ca change... Obviously, the quality of work is quite different. Unfair to compare (in either direction) an artisan pipe with a mass produced one.

    I've reviewed down this thread and it is a pleasure to see the technical skills catching up with the imagination shown in these designs. Not in any way to disparage the skills shown throughout. I saw a comment about blaming "materials and tools" for earlier pipes not being to the maker's full satisfaction in some way. Peshaw! Methinks he doth protest too much.

    What does the dual chamber do? Is it a slurp bucket for moisture to flow into?

    The second chamber is a cooling chamber. That way you always draw cool smoke. A nice side effect is moisture never travels up the stem.

    I hope the storm along the East coast won't effect Bob or this shipment. Fingers crossed.
