This Cardinal House pipes Hollingsworth series Brandy shaped briar tickets all the boxes when it comes to fine pipes! The smooth, virgin finished bowl shows off some gorgeous cross-grain, the three tight knuckled length of bamboo shank is delineated from the bowl with brindled Ebonite, and the shank/stem transition features a unique and painstakingly crafted “stepped” ferrule design, a challenge which I’m not inclined to revisit any time soon! The band, ferrule, and stem are expertly hand-cut from Toffee Brindle SEM German Ebonite rod.
This pipe is 5.15 inches long and 1.25 inches tall. The chamber is 3/4 inches diameter and 1.1 inches deep.
