    Holger, the slopes of Mt. Purgatorium look perfect. What is the wood on the stem? The whole thing looks very good. And if you can say, how did you color the shank so black? Is it briar...?

    Interesting shape, I really like the Palm-wood (is it) inlay on the stem.

    Hello all,

    thank you all for your kind words!

    @Ron: The Inlay wood is "Padauk" better to work with as with Plam Wood

    @Dave: The stem is also made out of an acrylic rod..here are 2 older pics that show that you just need some patience and a lot of rolled sanding paper :-)
