New Pipes: Bruce Weaver: Sandblasted Bulldog  

Product Number: 002-531-0048

Though known during the period by differing monikers (“Cad”, “Golf pipe”, “Chubby”), the Bulldog was one of the most popular shapes at the turn of the 19th-20th century, and, quite possibly, the most popular. As far as I can ascertain, the Bulldog never dropped out of the top ten most popular shapes list, and has even seen a solid resurgence in the work of many up-and-coming carvers. So, why is this the first straight Bulldog we have received from the heralded Bruce Weaver? Beats me, but (clearly) it isn’t a lack of prowess with the form.

To my way of thinking, this cool Weaver interpretation strikes a fine balance for fans of the shape who are seeking a touch of modernity, but without a manipulation of proportion and spirit sufficiently aggressive to turn a Bulldog into a Pomeranian. Featuring clean, sweeping lines, crisp angles and a downright classic placement of the double bead, you’ve got the real deal now in front of you... so please, do get it in front of you!
