I just want to take a moment and rub in how well this POY smokes. I'm thankful Brian was able to work with me before I left the States. This is the best POY we've had in years, in my opinion, though last year's was quite special as well.

I'm horrible at waiting. I've got a kid and a POY to wait for. GAH! :P

Thanks guys!
Beautifully done, Brian!

Let's start seeing some serious orders, now that the prototype is here.
The terms are $130/pipe plus $10 shipping from Denmark. At least 50% pre-paid with order.

The following have already expressed interest:

Mountainman
ReverendThom
mustangii
Al_S_
Pepik (ordering 2 pipes)

So... six of the 14 blocks have dibs.

And since one or two of those blocks might have a horrendous flaw or sand pit hidden inside, be quick to jump on the list!

I think you should be most excited about the kid :-) I have a boy as well, almost 20 months old now, and he's just the best!

He told me on Facebook last week that he was about to start sandblasting.

I know I haven't been much active here lately, but here's a quick update.
Here are all the poys dressed for the sandblaster. I will sandblast some of them today.

That seems to be not in your best interests. You've paid. And for a nice pipe, too. Let's give him a minute; I know he has a family. No response in 7 days, we'll reach put a little more proactively.

He just sent me a message on Facebook. Half are rusticated and almost ready for polishing :)
