Canadian, Lumberman, Lovat, Liverpool — What is the Difference?

These four classical shapes are very similar and often confused. They all have straight long shank, short stem and billiard bowl. The differences are in the shapes of shank and stem:

Canadian, Lumberman, Lovat, Liverpool Smoking Pipes

Liverpool and Lovat stems and shank are circular in section, and Canadians and Lumberman stems and shank are oval. Liverpool and Canadian stems are tappered, but Lovat and lumberman stems are saddle.

Canadians

Canadian (oval tappered stem) is my favorite shape. I love to smoke them and to make them. I have more canadians in my portfolio than any other shape.

Lumberman

Lumberman (oval saddle stem) is very close shape. I love them to, but I make them less often simply because they order them less often.

Liverpool

Liverpool has round tappered stem. This shape is most similar to the ancestor of all these shapes - Billiard. The only difference is another proportions os shank and stem. Billiard shank and stem have equal length, but Liverpools shank is longer than stem.
