The Poker

recently made three pipes for a dear friend in Australia, this is the first of them.  The poker shape is an old classic, I tried to make it a bit more modern with a cumberland stem and my own personality.

The Cavalier Blowfish

I was part of a trade where a number of pipe makers chose a pipe shape and each made their interpretation of that shape.  Then we drew random numbers and sent our pipes to whomever was chosen, and received a pipe from whomever was chosen.

This was my entry into the trade.  The shape is the cavalier shape, and the style I chose was a blowfish style, using imported Mediterranean briar, German ebonite, and a zebra wood footplug.
