Recently I purchased three pieces of Briar, and to start with, I'm going to try to create three pipes of my own.Wildcat wrote: ↑Sat May 05, 2018 6:57 amI've loved the Peterson Donegal Rocky Bulldog 150 from afar for a long time and that's probably as close as I'll get to owning one.
I've had Grabow bulldogs like shapes 83 and 60 etc, pass through my possession but gave all away as gifts oddly enough. I guess I wasn't fond of them enough to keep around.
My first restoration was a KW bulldog. I still have it. Always will. That reminds me, I have to get back the pics of it from Photobucket!!
As for shapes I "just can't", the Grabow 81 Author. I love the look, but it's just not a comfortable smoking pipe for me. And I've tried several times lol! But have always come to the same conclusion: nope.
Several pipes I gave been looking at, Not to copy, but to be influenced by, and this picture strikes me as one that I would like to be influenced by.
Wildcat, is that picture the Grabow 81 Author?
