The Buy is closed! Now the waiting begins... Welcome and Gather 'Round for Badger and Blade's First Ever Brown Leaf LE Pipe Introducing the B&B BL LE 2012 This custom carved pipe is a true one of a kind designed and carved by renowned and well established pipe maker Mark Tinsky. This new design, a variation on the classic bulldog, is not for sale in his catalog or through any distributor. It is a unique piece carved specifically for the fine members of the Badger and Blade and available only here in B&B's fine tobacco corner, The Brown Leaf. The Pipe is 5 7/8" long, has a chamber just over 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" deep. It is available exclusively in an attractive medium dark blast finish with a hand cut Lucite stem that contains a briar wood stem adornment. The blast is dark but does allow for some color variation, the blast work is also unique in that above the bulldogs traditional double lines it is a light blast while below those lines it is a deeper craggy blast. This subtle contrast shows nicely and feels very nice in the hand. The stamping will read - B&B BL LE 2012 and will be numbered in series. Mr. Tinsky has graciously agreed to make as many pipes as we have orders for between 2/7/2012 and 2/27/2012. Cost to our members is $186.00 shipping included.
