I was glad to have such a nice pipe for my 50th! Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut German Ebonite Stem and integral tenon.

This is a beautiful pipe with excellent grain (flame and straight all the way around the bowl). A couple of very small sand specs can be seen in the pics on the bottom and side of the shank. These keep this a grade B instead of an A, but they are not the least bit distracting to my eye.

This is the largest, and most beautiful of the A.S.P. 2008 POY's I've finished to date, and the only smooth, and very light for it's size. Unfortunately the pictures simply do not do it justice--I've got to get a better camera!

Made from Italian Plateaux with a unique half saddle hand cut German Ebonite stem with an integral tenon. A large Dublin with a deep craggy ring grain blast with lots of straight showing through the reddish tan blast. This is a large pipe, but feels light for its size. This is the nicest blast I've done to date, and the first done on my own blasting rig.

Weight: 1.65 oz (48 grams)

Made from Italian Plateaux with a boxwood endcap and a unique half saddle hand cut Cumberland stem with an integral tenon. A Medium sized and capacity pipe, with a subtle attractive stubbyiness to it. It has spot on drilling, and sports a deep craggy ring grain blast with lots of straight throughout. Reddish highlights show through the dark brown stain, nicely matching the color of the Cumberland stem. This is a very light pipe with excellent balance. A very nice blast on a one of a kind poker shape. A bit of a departure from the bulk of my work to date, and I think something of a break through.

Made from Italian Plateaux with a half saddle hand cut German Ebonite stem with an integral tenon. A medium sized Dublin with beautiful straight grain nearly completely around the bowl and along the side of the shank with just a hint of fall out. The grain is flowing from birdseye top and bottom. Two small flaws on the top, and a few small sand pits keep this a Grade C, and a very good value for this much grain. Very well balanced with a large capacity for it's moderate size.

Height: 2.28" (58 mm)
Diameter: 2.06" (47 mm) side to side at the bottom

Chamber Diameter: .75" (19 mm)
Chamber Depth: 1.61 " (41 mm)
Weight: 3.65 oz (104 grams)

Made from Italian Plateaux with a unique half saddle hand cut German Ebonite stem with an integral tenon. A large Volcano with beautiful straight grain on the sides, and straight grain with some fall out on the front and back of the bowl. The grain is flowing from very nice birdseye top and bottom. The shank has some especially beautiful straight to birdseye grain transitions between the sides and top. Very clean wood with a little of the natural plateaux left on the bottom. I rated this a grade B and not an A because of the way the plateaux on the bottom took the stain, but I don't find this detracts at all from the over all beauty from this very fine piece.
