Made from Grecian briar with a hand cut German Ebonite Stem and integral tenon.

This was the prototype for my A.S.P POY Belge shape. Nice red highlights on top of the dark brown finish. It's wxtremely lght for it's size and should be an excellent smoker.

I need to point out the nomenclature picture. If you look clossley bellow the "4" in "49", you see that I slipped on the first attempt. I don't find it to distracting, but it could certainly be an issue for some. This should be a great smooker, and is an excellent value.

A.S.P POY #3 (51), Partial Blast Belge

$195 Sold, thanks!

Specs:
Grade D
Height: 2.14 "
Diameter: 1.3"
Overall Length: 6.8 "
Chamber Diameter: .75"
Chamber Depth: 1.92"
Weight: 34 grams (1.15 oz)

Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut German Ebonite Stem and integral tenon.

This is a nice pipe with a good ring grain blast around the bowl, and nice smooth birdseye on top. I was not able to get the blast definition I wanted in the shank, which keeps this an excellent value grade D.

This is an extremely light pipe for it's size with good capicity.

Grade B
Height: 2.15 "
Diameter: 1.42"
Overall Length: 7"
Chamber Diameter: .75"
Chamber Depth: 1.91"
Weight: 41 grams (1.4 oz)

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!
