Notes

The design for this pipe came out of a collaboration between my good friend Patrice Gaudry and myself.

And I made a rusticated version of this pipe for him back at the time, like four years ago.

But for some reason, I have not made another one since then, and I don't know why. He told me he was fine with me making more for others, if I wanted to.

I guess I was just waiting for the right inspiration to line up with the right piece of briar.

This piece of briar does have a couple of pinhole sized imperfections that you generally only see when the light hits them just right.

Otherwise, it is quite a nice piece of briar.
