Longshank Acorn
Price: $365

I've been wanting to make a pipe like this for a very long time, but nearly every attempt resulted in a pipe of significantly less shank, and considerably more stem. It's just the way things work out sometimes, but this time I was determined. There were a few hair raising moments as I checked, double checked, and re-double-plus-checked things like mortis direction, airway location, and the bottom of the tobacco chamber.

After the stummel was shaped, I took a hard left on my plans for a taper stem since I really did not like the way it looked in my mind's eye, and decided on a saddle stem instead. The shank ring was also a bit of a last minute addition, and is made from faux horn - the same type that I've used to make stems and fountain pens.
