Whew! Tomorrow the last of my six week run of blowfish shapes will be going out the door, enabling me to get to work on a few new Goblins and finally start thinking about a group pipe set for a particular pipe club. I close this run with my usual mixed feelings that I always have when doing blowfish – I always feel that the shape is so fundamentally “Jess” that I get turf-encroachment vibes. Perhaps that’s behind my tendency to go in odd directions with the shape. I don’t have this problem at all with the classical English shapes, strangely enough. This fishy came out absolutely enormous – note the scale of the pipe to the bit! It will shortly be on its way to a happy buyer who, one must hope, really likes pipes that you can knock someone out with…

Well, Trever, you know where to call if he doesn’t like it…

Best regards,
