Two YB Nova brylon pipes in preparation for August Brylon Challenge. One will be going to a lucky contestant chosen by me at random. SM Frank is not making some of these shapes anymore. The bulldog is one that is hard to find.

My super cool medico Lancer brylon pot showed up yesterday. I'll be cleaning it tomorrow most likely and then it will get tossed into service. Respectable cake in the chamber so someone sure enjoyed the way it smokes.

How's the weight on yours? I am calling B.S. on the whole myth of them being super heavy. Mine is a standard 6" length, and it comes in at 1.5oz(44 grams). It's lighter than my Stanwell 51 and my Three Star Bulldog. Mine smokes dang good, and the bowl stays cool.

That is about the same weight as a Dunhill gp 4 billiard. The Riviera pot I have in rotation now is 30.9 g. The Icarus is 43.7 g.

I'll weigh it for sure tomorrow but mine is a brick. Most likely the heaviest pipe I own

So I'll retract my statement of the brylon being a brick, it's heavy but not too insane. Weighs in at 1.7oz, 48.2 grams for those of you playing at home. It is oddly top heavy at the bowl which is what made me think it was heavier than the actual numbers
