I received my pipe from Jack Howell yesterday and am very pleased. This is a very nice blast and the stem work is perfect. I've never met Jack, but I'm sure I'll purchase more of his work. Here is a link to
I got one of Jack's pipes last year. I prefer blasts and rusticated pipes so I got what I believe is one of his 1st blasts. A quarter-bent horn with a cimberland stem. I have a hard time giving this pipe proper rest when I'm smoking alot as it is my best smoker. It is a perfect size and weight for me. The nice surprise I got with the pipe is how it is coloring as I smoke it. It's gone from a "brown sugar" color to a dark mahogany. I simply love this pipe!
