It's been a while now since I've created a wizard pipe. I decided to combine the idea of my lucky pipe with the my freehand wizard design and thus was created the Lucky wizard. this pipe has substantially thicker walls on the bowl than the lucky pipe which became a concern of mine the more I looked at it. I do like freehand pipes but they quickly become very similar and as I am trying to stay on the more unique side of pipe designs I don't want to wear out a good thing to quickly. I did want to try the green Dye again and it looks great on the italian brair. This is most certainly my last St. Patrick's day inspired pipe of the year. I am hoping to turn my eyes back toward the Lord of the Rings Travel pipes soon, strong, sturdy pipes with wooden stems.
