    Looks like a nice natural, is it lightweight or does it have some weight to it? Also, I've been thinking on making a peace pipe, is that the type of pipe you are talking about?a

    Nice fork. Is it made from Privet (Ligustrum Vulgaris) an ever green with small round leaves? That stuff is nice and hard.
