Hi all,
I am looking for reference photos of the pipe we can see in national treasure movie.
I will carve one from meerschaum, and I try to get visual informations.
It's not easy as the most I find are small pictures, or replicasn the good one from relikmaker, and some really not that good from different makers.
Si if someone has something he could share, I would be happy.
I don't remember exactly but I think some original cast parts have been sold on auction some years ago.
I hope someone will be able to provide help for references.

I got no reply, so I used movie screenshots as reference pictures.
After some searches, I think the design is less or more based from antique german pipes.
So I will make the bowl from meerschaum, but the stem will be made from horn and ivory, maybe horn, ivory and wood if I can't find complete horn tube.
Here is the meerschaum blank with some very rough shaping.

That's wicked! I never thought about the pipe from that movie (always focused on other bits in it lol). Can't wait to see the final build.
