Hillcrest 83

Hillcrest 83 on the way, I had to pay more than I would have liked but they don't come through very often especially in a 81 or 83 model so I grabbed it.

Ebay picture, I will post another when she arrives.

I was watching that one, a real beauty.

I doubt I could have convinced myself to pull the trigger, though. Long run, I think your judgement was more sound than mine.

Congratulations, that's a fine looking pipe.

Congrats, Clint, that's a nice Bull Gravy? Ladle Dog? Bull Ladle? Gravy Dog? Troy, could you redo the shape charts for us? I get the Gravy Ladle and Water Dipper variations confused, thanks.

Ok here is a crash course

Full bents  is a water dipper...... seems Bob Hope was found of them .




Quarter bent wide bowls , author ,bull dog etc.. is part of the  gravy ladle family.
This one obviously is a fancy Dunhiill



A 85 poker is a mallet....i don't recall who came up with that but it stuck


A wirecarved 39 is a turkey neck .....Sean came up with that one.



The rest are up for grabs as far as names ,so get cracking people !

The thread hijacking is complete now....... carry on.

Thanks, Troy, clears up a lot of confusion on my end. Sorry, Clint, we tried to stay on point.

Fancy 81 Bob has, never seen them made out of aluminum before.

That's a good one Troy, G'Day Guys

OK , I got her in early this morning and sanitized her, in which is all I had to do, as she looks practically new. The ebay picture looks better than mine but  I will post them anyway. I can never seem to get my camera to take 2 good pictures in a row LOL. The Markings on the pipe are crisp and clear I just can't take a good picture except on the rare occasion my camera wants to allow me to do so.
