“You see,” he said, “I’m not interested in their politics. I’ve never met the lot of them.”
“What do you mean?” I said.

He pulled out a long, luxurious pipe with a rough blonde bowl, packed it, lit it, and sat back into a smiling reverie. I waited as he drew on it with closed eyes, for he was taken up with the river of time, and there was no pulling him out of its current.

“I mean,” he said at last, “that I’m quite present right here, in this day. What could take me out of this moment, with this pipe, at this table, outside this cafe? I’ve no time for these theoretical theatrics, trying to imagine what men are like without knowing them.”

He drew on the pipe again, and I couldn’t help but notice how sweet was the smoke, how lofty the sky, and how rich the afternoon in which we sat.

This pipe is a sort of mini-churchwarden, coming in at just over 6.5″ long. The bowl was carved from the finest Italian briar and blasted to showcase some very beautiful ring grain.

The stem was hand cut out of German Ebonite, 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.
