2017 Pipe of the Year

We are excited to announce that this year’s Club Pipe of the Year is being carved by Marco of Moretti Pipes. The pipe will be a Canadian style pipe dedicated to the memory of Tony Soderman (founding club member who passed away last year). It will have a black acrylic stem (note the photos show a swirled Lucite stem), black rusticated finish, with a smooth rim.

 

Specs:   Length: 6 3/4 to 7 inches,  Height of bowl: 1 7/8 to 2 inches, chamber dia: 13/16 in.

The pipe can be purchased by all current club members (in good standing on dues) for $175 with shipping included.  More details to follow regarding ordering.

Passing of a Friend

It’s with heavy hearts that we deliver the sad news that club member Tony Soderman has passed away due to complications of recent health issues. Tony was a driving force of our pipe club since it’s inception and served as our club President for many years. Tony was known world-wide for his commitment and knowledge of pipes and pipe collecting, pipe history and developing strong relationships within the pipe collectors community. He will be dearly missed.
