No sooner had the bent (#039) arrived than Baker Egerton found this pipe being auctioned on eBay by Judd Perlson. So now I have both styles in the collection. This one, too, is Rosewood, according to the Appalachian Woodworking staff. The pipe was carved from the rare wood, plasticized in a vacuum chamber, and had a pyrolytic graphite bowl liner inserted. There were eight hardwoods used to manufacture this line of pipes: teak, mahogany, cocobolo, purple heart, sycamore, rosewood, Tasmanian Oak and an ironwood. When I began "thinning the herd," Bill Moore jumped for this one.
