The two tobacco pipes of The New Dominion were commissioned by a friend of mine (upon whose name dominion is a bit of a play) for himself and his brother. This has been the first set of pipes I have made. The two pipes are similar but with significant differences. I had given them three options to choose between and both brothers asked for the same thing but one wanted a churchwarden stem. I am thrilled with the outcome. The shields with the initials in them came out particularly well.
