The Blackfriar
Topic: Pipe 12: DEC06

    Pipe 12 of '06 is to be called

 after the Roman Catholic
    friar wearing the black mantle of
    the Dominican order.

Corporate Downsizing?
Topic: Pipe 12: DEC06

This batch of wood is proving difficult in that it is soooo dry its hard and brittle. That equals cracking. This pipe has gotten small but it is similar to one of my favorites, an all black one i had in mind when I started. I'm calling it "The Blackfriar"  This will be a great sitting in traffic smoke.

Last Pipe of 2006!
Topic: Pipe 12: DEC06


This is the last pipe of '06!

Fittingly the tobacco chamber is perfect as is the beginning of the bowl. This pipe will be a subtle refection of my Castle pipe, but effectively is being CARVED to showcase my Blackrock finish, one of three Thos.Martin finishes : Blackrock, Castlerock, and Smooth Stone. Stay tuned.

  After final  shaping with the coping saw, this pipe will be carved old school style: with a knife . . .
