Not sure if this one would qualify as a tamper or a weapon. I needed a break from the normal. Whitetail antler, sandblasted bamboo, ebonite rings, and briar tamp end.

Nice.

I think you'd need a concealed weapons permit for that. :lol:
Really cool btw.

You're not making the most of your situation, JMG...

That's a dorsal spine from the rare and deadly Wild New Guinea Ribbox, a segment of fossilized South Pacific Sea Tarantula leg, and the cap is bloodwood stolen from a tribal sacrifice platform.

An absolute steal at $2500. (Especially after evading the group of warriors that chased you for two days through the jungle after nicking the bloodwood.)

Now, that's the ticket! Maybe I could sell it on this site: http://handmade-briar-usa.com/Pipes.htm

Exactly.

Might have to glue a few costume rubies on it with a dab of Gem-Tac, but no biggie.

In fact, then it ought to be worth $5K.

Don't worry. You're not alone. Everyone on this board thinks that's WAY too low, and is waiting for the price to go UP before buying it (to avoid insulting the maker).
