Growley Pipes

Ramses’ Throne (SOLD)

September 9, 2015Growleyarchived 2015

Here Ramses is found sitting atop his royal throne. His right-hand man the Firebelly Digtoad sits patiently and awaits instruction. Much less patient is the Bumpy Digtoad, who isn’t quite right in his mind. The three together make a menacing brood.

The Ramses pipe is one of the most comfortable pipes I’ve ever smoked. It hangs effortlessly and almost unnoticed. The Ramses shape was originally designed by the great Bo Nordh, and has since been carved by many wonderful pipemakers, who have made their own contributions to the design. In this particular design, I took inspiration from Peter Heding and Alex Florov, who both make wonderful Ramses pipes. To date, this is the largest Ramses I have ever made.

This pipe offers some great straight grain wrapping around the belly of the bowl. It terminates into bird eye on the back panel. The “tattoos” were hand carved with Egyptian stylings.

The stem was hand carved from German Cumberland Ebonite, and was fitted with a comfort fit button, which makes it comfortable and easy to hold in your mouth. The accent ring is made of white camel bone. 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.
