This Dublin is a version of Alex Florov’s version of Jorn Micke’s pipe. With the Kansas City carving contest promoting Dublin pipes this year, I went in search of beautiful Dublin shapes to inspire me. It’s no surprise that I was inspired once again by one of Alex’s pipes. He does such beautiful work. With all that said, to be clear, this wasn’t my contest pipe. It was one I made after making my contest pipe, having enjoyed the shape and the process as much as I did.
This pipe is hand carved from the best Italian briar and has a very wonderful, tight straight grain. The grain is lovely all around the entire pipe. The shank was extended with a German Ebonite extension.
The stem was hand crafted from German creamsicle acrylic, and was fashioned with a comfort bit. As with all my pipes, I’ve opened this pipe up properly to give it the the right air flow to provide a cool dry smoke.
