Another Aragorn pipe.  This one has an engraving customized to the owner, translated into Elvish.  Up until this point I have been using maple for the stem material on these pipes, but I’ve switched to oak for the reason that maple is much springier and is more difficult to bend.  Bending oak is a pleasure…  This piece of briar has beautiful grain patterns, with tiger eye on one side, and nice swirl on the other.  I’ve just upgraded my buffing equipment, and really enjoyed the finishing process on this one.
