Now here's a gorgeous little number from the likes of American carver Bruce Weaver. Is it a Cutty or is it a Belge? Some might argue that without a foot on the heel it can't be a true Cutty. Nevertheless, on account of its clay inspired bowl shape and cant, and its lengthy thin shank, the pipe is certainly darling. Particularly so here, stained in a ruby red and sporting the kind of deep-etch sandblast that's turned so many smokers and collectors on to this carver's work.
