Oh yeah.....been waitin' for this one!

There are a few more, but ran out of room on the paper. All are 45's or 49's (s)

I smoke English (latakia) blends exclusively in my pots.  Can you tell I like latakia?  The pot is one of my most favorite shapes.  Simple elegance that Sparta did SO well!

Got that right.  Sparta pipe designers got this shape exactly right.  Wonderful collection Carl.

The only DG pot I have with the exception of an old beat-up ugly orphan I smoke while working on pipes is this one to which Ed James added the red, white and blue shank extension to accommodate a twin-flow clear acrylic stem. I smoke it on days honoring veterans and the flag!

Special

Cool outline spade
Oldredbeard

That Special is a neat pipe.
JoeMan

Is that spade more of a stamping, painted on, inlay, what?
Fr_Tom

Here is a Commodore 45 of mine.

Dave G

The button is a little thin on this one. One of these days I plan on building it back up.

Spade is embossed in outline form.  The white must have been added after embossing.

Now I can show off my DG pot! By finding a yellow spade non-filter stem that could be reworked I managed to turn my first attempt at salvaging this fine old Royal Duke bowl (bottom photo of original saddlebit restore) into a smokeable pipe. I have used it on my work bench for some time but the old beatup saddlebit stem that had cracked bayonet mounts, finally gave up the ghost.

Today I found this yellow spade non-filter stem in my junk box spent some time sanding out the many tooth marks and slipped it into the bowl. It fit!

I am just as pleased with this as a non-filter as I was with a filter and now it is a little more respectable. The carving on this bowl is one of my favorite Sparta styles ... just doesn't seem like you find it very often.
vwdeano

Great looker, Dave.  I like that one a lot...
C.E. Purdy

That's a nice one Dave!
Uncle Rich

I put rubber mouthpiece on all my pipes and they nicely coverup any toothmarks from previous users. quick and easy fix.
Eric

That Commodore and Emperor are out of this world guys!

Sweet pipes. The pot is my favorite shape. I have 6 or 7 of them laying around I'll have to round up for a picture.
Uncle Rich

To me a pot is a billiard that works out- my 2 very favorite shapes. simple and efficient mean to enjoy tobacco.
