Tim Fuller: A Golden Pipe


While I enjoy testing various pipes of otherwoods, made by Tim Fuller, occasionally I confess to enjoy relaxing with one of his briar pipes. Now this goes back to the past winter when Tim had his post-Christmas pipe sale. I decided that the pipe, shown below, was particularly handsome and bought it.

The days when I'd smoke a pipe immediately on receipt seem to have flown by. I've had what I've termed a "Golden Pipe" many months before I decided to give it a try. As if one couldn't guess: it broke in excellently.

The shape of this particular pipe has caused any number of nomenclature discussions between Tim and me. The two most probable shapes are Rhodesian and bulldog, but I tend to think of it as a freehand. But no matter the name, it's a pleasure to smoke.
