Bent EggBent Egg with exceptional ring grain blast and smooth rim. Did I say the blast was good? It's definitely one of the better blasts I've made this year. The tight and deep rings start dead on at the heel and radiates up the bowl and shank. The shank ring is from the antler of an Indiana whitetail deer from my very own home town. The mouthpiece is hand cut from German ebonite rod and has a very thin bite. The stamping is crisp and clear and a cleaner passes easily. If you like this pipe don't hesitate, it won't last long!
