One of my favorite things is when I get comissioned to make a pipe with few restrictions on it. In the case of Ravik, the gentleman I was making it for wanted a freehand he could sit down and read fantasy novels with. He was happy with the pipe and I was happy making it for him. As an aside this is the only pipe I have made a military-fit stem for. It took a long, long time to get it to fit right.
