I had a little piece of off cut left over from the block that I used for #1601. After looking it over, I was thinking that I might get a small stummel from it. This is what happened! The stummel have 2 pinprick flaws and one that looks like a scratch at the bottom, none of which will affect the bowl. I've left a little bit of plateaux on the bottom as well and think that it is quite a nice touch. It is a very light small little pipe, perfect for clenchers. If it doesn't go quickly, this one will go into my piperack!
