    If someone gave me one for nothing I wouldn't say no however I'd never be seen smoking it in public.

    Very wise. I couldn't see that pipe lasting too long walking the streets of Glasgow. Lol
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Hardly "complete" to my eye. The stem is a total afterthought with no carryover of design elements whatsoever.

    It's not a terrible looking pipe. Just not my thing.
    I think in some ways the stem is meant to be a handle on a beautiful piece of art.

    Sorry, Joe. If we were talking about sculptures I could maybe buy that justification, but we're not. We're talking about pipes and the stem is a part of the whole. For decades prior to the making of this pipe the Brits, French, Italians, and even the Danes themselves were making pipes with unity in the design from bowl to button. The Danes just lost their way for a while.

    This one is for Anthony, a later Ben Wade era pipe; a Preben Holm Crown.

    While this stem better compliments the shaping of the pipe, I'd rather have the button of the stem in the OP. It's not mine, just a pipe on ebay

    Yeah, that's better. There a some unity going on there, but it's still a bit of an afterthought.

    "Hey! I have some curves in my stummel. So, why don't I put a spiral on the stem? Spirals have curves, right?"

    Now, imagine if instead of a spiral, the stem had a base that mimicked the tulip blossom-ish lines of the bowl. Then, we'd have something intentionally made for this pipe.

    Either way, I can't say that I'm into the stummel shaping on this one. The top-down view looks awesome, but the side profile loses me completely. That's just a personal preference thing though.
