    Sweet pipe, Thomas, and I particularly like the cross-hatch pattern on the bowl. I'm not at all morta-fied!

    Two Morta Pipes - both commissioned from Chris Askwith - about 200 each, so not as expensive as a new Dunhill.

    Briarworks/Moonshine just introduced a morta Devil Anse for $150.



    Not bad pricing for a brand new pipe. So far, that's the only shape though.

    Russ, I vaguely recall Chris Askwith calling that appearance "pinstripe grain" - when the bog oak of that era (10,000 years old from the bogs of Norfolk) is sandblasted. Best seen on Thomas' and Jimbo's pipes - I think it gives the pipe an elegant look.
