L1 natural Bullcap with silver army mount.
Sometime the solution to a problem will end up with a very interesting
and beautiful pipe. The flat front panel of this pipe, upon which
it can sit was almost certainly done to "run out" a
surface flaw. All hand makers face such situations, where only
one little sand spot stands between success or failure. The secret
is in working out the offending spot without destroying the pipe
at the worst, or making the pipe even more interesting as with
this pipe. That is the sigh of a great pipe maker!
