Notes: A large freehand smooth, the fourth pipe in a series featuring battleship teak for the acrylic stem's collar (see the notes for pipe #49). An impressive piece of Grecian briar, with symmetrical, even grain coverage and a large expanse of plateaux on the front, the shape of which resembles, at least to my mind, the cross-section of a ship. A natural, unstained finish on this one, simply buffed out with carnauba wax. A few pinprick flecks, hard to spot save on close inspection, precluded this becoming a Signature grade, although some may find the shape somewhat reminiscent of my first Signature, which is incorporated into my logo above. At any rate, this pipe has the usual delrin tenon hidden beneath the teak. As with pipes 49-51, twenty-five dollars from the price of this pipe will be donated to the restoration fund for the battleship USS North Carolina; her old deck was the source of the teak.
