Hello, kind and gentle pipe enthusiasts (and Bear).
I am still working hard in Chicago and thus am not able to provide a complete post as often as I would like. I just spent this weekend visiting Alex Florov, Scott Klein, and Iwan Ries, so expect stories on all three in the coming months.
In the mean time, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is a photo collage of a beautiful pipe by Michail Revyagin that I recently finished working. Be well and smoke in peace! (Be sure to click for a larger version!)
