Larry Roush has always been a popular carver, especially in recent years. He rarely goes to pipe shows, but people know his work well. If fact, whenever he posts a pipe for sale on his website, it rarely lasts more than a few minutes. Some don't like his style, which is really plays a lot with proportions, but I find many of his pieces to be very successful. This piece not only has rich grain, but one of Roush's signature silver bands and a nice cumberland stem.
