    A comfy looking & cute pipe, very nice!
    Larsens tobaco never seems to get mentioned or smoked on this or any forum. Anybody a fan? I've never tried any myself, just wondering out loud.

    All I can tell you is that Bo (St. Bernhardt) used to blend the tobaccos when he worked in the W.O. Larsen shop in Copenhagen.

    In house blending 'a la rattrays' proper old school! Must have been a wonderful sight & smell inside their shop.

Light sanding with 600 paper to smooth out the slightly domed rim, with use of the "cat toy tool", and 1500 micromesh on the inner edge. I sanded the entire pipe lightly with 600 paper and 1500 micro to lighten the color of the pipe. No added stain, just wiped with oil, and polished by hand. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. A lovely Dublin, with a faceted shank on the top, curved on the bottom; the pipe smokes exceedingly well.
    Great pipe. Nice cat‘s toy. Great idea. Nice job. Beautiful chair.

    Congratulations all around

    A great-looking pipe. Congratulations, Dave, and a neat trick with the cat toy.

    In regards to the "cat toy trick," I'd recommend that anyone wanting to try it use something completely solid, smooth, and slightly flexible. A ball of rubber or Nerf-like material would work well. In the case of the Larsen here, Dave just decided to run what he brung, which worked out well but there's a potential for those ridges to hang up or cause a skip that would throw the bevel out of round.
