Ron Fairchild Smooth Zulu (2009)

Product Number: 004-009-5689

From all that I've heard from Adam, Ron Fairchild is a downright pleasant fellow to meet: good-natured, a rousing conversationalist, and apparently "tall", which I guess is always a good way to make a lasting first impression. He also makes a damn good pipe too, for which I do have a firsthand account.

What first struck me about this pipe was the presentation - the near perfect panorama of birdseye and the well oriented cross-grain, not to mention the cumberland stem. The shape is somewhat of a cross between a Dublin and Zulu, though it leans more toward the latter, and all given a quirky wave to the rim. The engineering here is second to none, which doesn't surprise me given that Fairchild grew up under a carpenter and has been carving pipes for a whopping 25 years.
