    It seems to be have the characteristics of both a brandy and an apple shape.

    It appears to be a little too elongated in the bowl to fit a traditional apple shape and not quite tapered enough to be a brandy. I usually call the in-betweeners such as this "apple brandy".

    Good looking pipe whatever you choose to call it. Congrats and enjoy!

    Never even knew there was a 'brandy' shape so your thread has taught me something Paul.

    It is a stunner.

    Hello,

    By chance I'm now smoking a sandblasted James Upshall of a very similar shape, but with a tapered stem. I keep calling mine an apple, but the bowl might have a quarter inch topped off the rim compared to yours. Or it's just the optics of the grain that makes your bowl look taller.

    Best wishes
    Markus
