Smooth Volcano

Postby Brurobas » Tue Nov 25, 2014 11:53 pm

Good evening my friends!

Due to several reasons, both professional and personal, i have been away from pipe making since early this year. Now, things are a bit calmer and i could go back to my passion.

Here is a pipe i finished last week.

It's Smooth Volcano with gorgeous grain. It was made from a block of Greek Plateaux. The stem is Acrylic Horn.

This pipe and the Dublin are both quite beautiful, Bruno. You obviously take a lot of pride in your work and I really like the photo presentation, very effective. :D

I don't have a volcano shape. The shape just has to work well, according to my mind.

I saw this pipe on BoB and was impressed then and continue to be now having seen it again. Fine work!
Pipe smoking: the most cultivated taking of tobacco; a good friend and a sublime addiction; but give me a cigar, too. But so expensive: smoke up and smoke less.
