Very interesting, but as you stated I would not smoke one as itís a bizarre work of art. I need something that usable and that wonít shatter me, at least for maybe a day, if I mishandled it, dropped it or scorched it.
Iím still mad at myself for scorching the crap out of my Charatanís make Rhodesian.
I havenít had the chance to send it in for reconditioning and every attempt I try to make things better has resulted in making it worse. It will need a complete restrain and clear coat.
Yep if I spent the bones on one of those it would just be a curio Queen. Iíve got a number of watches that I never wear outside the house, for fear of destroying them somehow. Iíve sold off most of them.
IMHO pipes should be as functional as possible and while this would be cherished, I know my clumsiness would prevent me from smoking it.
Great post though. Truly a beautiful collection of pipes.
