    A Blast for Bill!

    Here's a pipe that quashes my opinion on grain (that it's best 'blasted) & proves bill right.
    Although I disagree with bill a lot, we all know the best 'Canadians' are made in Old London Town, for example.
    To be fair, this is a reject, but a good example of a 'bad day' in the sandblasting department.

    The most popular stamp in my collection, The Reject. Lol

    Not that I'm complaining mind, if they'd of left it alone I'd probably not of been able to afford it.

    Simon, you've been finding some very nice F&T "Rejects" (?) I can see that pipe coloring up in the future as it gets smoked!

    Cheers Dave! It's not by choice, I'm forever looking for a F&T canted stack (the non reject variety) but still no cheese.
    Alas, these rejects keep showing up & winking at me. What's a boy to do?

    There' another f & T Canadian up on E-Bay ....see here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/123178781373?ul_noapp=true

    I guess the grain was there on the right side but not on the left. Interesting colour for the finish.

    Cheers Bill! Yes, I saw that Canadian as well. Looks a bit rough to me, a few sandpits & fills.

    Looks like a good crack which the vendor left to the second last pic. You had to scroll over.
