    NEW Hand Made RDPipes Cutty

    Just thought I'd give ya all a look at what I have going right now in the way of pipes before I finish it.
    It's made from Algerian briar with a hand cut ebonite stem and weighs as much as a breath of air. A big difference from the giants I'm accustom to making.


    Just a bit smaller then I led on though.
    It actually is 4-1/2"L x 1-1/2"h x 7/8"W x with a 1/2" chamber 1" deep.
    Had some scrap pieces of briar and seeing I'm out of blocks at the time I figured I'd keep myself busy doing this. I think it came out rather well for what it is. Maybe I'll use it as a key-chain or something.
    Oh! and yes it does have a draft hole and is completely functional pipe............if you don't mind 2 minute smokes.

    I like it Ron. I personally think that for some blends a small pipe works very well!

    Yeah, but we're talking a half inch bowl sir, I couldn't even load one coin of Escudo in it.......maybe a 3rd of one and give me like a 3 minute smoke, what a tease.

    True, but a good shaping exercise.

    You guys from Texas, please note when it gets to 30 C Below or minus 24 F a 3 minute smoke is all you need lol. Nice pipe Ron even though this shape isn't at the top of my list.

    Bill, It snows and gets down in the 20's and has even gotten into the teens, that's why a wise Texan has an outdoor heater on his porch..........to keep comfy and warm while he enjoys his 1/2hr to 45 min smoke.
    Oh! and not to mention a good cup O Joe next to'em.

    Golly. The proportions are so spot on that I couldn't for the life of me tell how eensy that pipe actually is until you put it next to a pipe nail. That's a pretty fabulous job of carving. Just lovely!

    Thank you Herb, I really like how Cutty's look esthetically but, don't like how the heat affects the front side of the bowl, makes me nervous about scorching and burnout.
