Growley Pipes

The Horned Hound: (SOLD)

“Do not light a fire near Glipwood Forest, not if the rangers have not ranged.” Thus begins perhaps the most important poem ever written about survival in Skree. The saying is especially true if there are horned hounds about. Thy are drawn to fire as surely as toothy cows. These dogs are as big as a colt, will eat (with mouth), stab (with horn), chase (with speed), and disobey (with arrogance) any living thing, especially if that living thing is minding its own business beside a fire.

– Panegyrics by Andrew Peterson

This pipe was inspired by a creation of one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Andrew Peterson. He is not only an outstanding singer, songwriter, poet, author and gardener, but he’s a pretty great guy too. So this pipe was made to honor the complete awesomeness of “The Horned Hound”.

The bowl was hand carved out of the best Italian Briar. The main piece is a beautiful cut of horn and the shank extension is a pretty piece of black bamboo.

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.
