    Mine showed up today. I decided that my first smoke would be luxury twist flake, and it smoked like a dream.

    Heh. I find the "They" pretty funny.

    Unless you meant me, and the 15 helper gnomes I keep chained up in the basement (in which case I'd ask just how in the hell you found out about my gnomes). . .

    I asked Dave to make me a pipe based off of some pictures that I sent him. He said he could do it and I gave him every bit of freedom to do what he thought was best.

    The result is this fabulous Long Shank Pot.

    The birdseye is amazing. The pipe is very light in the hand and thus can be a clencher is I so choose. The pipe is well balanced. I am breaking it in with some 12 yr old Dark Star and after 2 half bowls I am convinced that this pipe will bring me years and years of enjoyment.

    Thanks again Dave for all your efforts. I see more McCarter Pipes in my future.

    Re: McCarter Pipes

    Big bump for this thread because my new McCarter customs arrived.

    I asked Dave to make me a hawkbill and I ended up with 2. I think they're beautiful, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.



    And check out the grain




    I love this birdseye.

    Now I have 3 McCarter customs and I couldn't be happier with them. The 2 hawkbills smoke amazingly well and I was a bit suprised to see how easily they passed a pipe cleaner.

    Big thanks to Dave once again for working with me on these customs and overshooting my expectations!

    Huge thanks to Chris for the pics. You did a great job of highlighting the grains and the unusual (although, I've come to appreciate, extremely cool) Hawkbill form. I had a great time working up this Custom pipe.

    For the record. . .the darker stained pipe was my "figuring out how the hell to drill and shape a Hawkbill" pipe. I consider it a "second". The lighter one, with the substantial stem & shank (per Chris' request) is the version I'd put forth as a nice representation of the form.

    I've learned a lot since starting this thread about people's taste in pipes. Nearly all the straight & flake pipes from my site (McCarter Pipes) sold right away. What's still available are some cool 1/4 and 1/2 bents. But I'll be crafting more straight pipes as responsibilities and my "real" job allow.

    I'll try to get a new pipe or two listed each week. So check back often!

    Thanks to all my Puff people for the purchases and especially the feedback.

    Best,
    Dave

    Dave, I am highly impressed with your work brother. They look beautiful and spot on in regards to the details.

    I window shop your site often...waiting for the right one to pop up someday!

    I just wanted you to know that you are doing what looks to be a fantastic job, and keep it up BOTL!

    If you know what the right one would be, drop him a line and let him know. I was pretty sure the Hawks wouldn't have shown up unless I asked.

    Thanks, as yes...I think you are right as I have been "sketching" my pipe for the last few days...considering sending it to him to see if it's workable...but kept thinking, "oh, I plan to do it myself anyway as I have a wood shop"...but then I remember that I just bought a home and moved and that my shop has yet to be a priority to getting set back up...so, long story short...you may have just pushed me over the edge to email him something next week...hmmmm!
