Don't be afraid, I'm not dead or anything :-)
I've been busy with a lot of things. The pipes are coming.
They are not rusticated though, but sandblasted. Please excuse reverendthom for that horrible mistake :wink:

A very sound and good looking pipe in my view...straight stem...and the compact brandy/apple bowl means thick walls - where it matters - with relatively low weight. Functionally ideal in fact...the Danes know their thing... to be sure! Sandblast? ...the best damn finish of them all I reckon. Gogogo. (thinks....will it have generous draft? ie 5/16" /4mm or wider) .
Oh...and another thought ....a healthy wider shank bore would it some reverse calabash capability...in my view a good thing. (Quite a few of my pipes are from Germany and have the 8mm filter capability - which I leave empty ...the resultant cavity does cool and mellow the smoke somewhat!)

Hello guys.
I know it's been a long time since my last update, I apologize for that.
The pipes are coming along just fine. I only need to sandblast the last two pipes. The first row is almost done, and the second row will soon be done as well.

My main problem is the sandblasting. I don't have a sandblasting setup, so I have to sandblast them at Erik Nielsen's workshop. That's why it's taking some time.

I don't have any skin in this game (do you guys use that term Brian?), but it seems like this deal is sort of dragging out. We generally try to have POY's delivered in time for the holiday season which in the US starts about mid-November and runs through New Years Day. Shipments in and around the US slow down due to increased volume during that time of year so I'd figure 4 weeks transit from there to here. Do you think these will be delivered by Christmas Brian?

Is it too late to get in on this?

I was never informed of that.

When it became official that I would make the pipes this year, I gave you a deadline. That deadline was November, and still is.
That means i will do everything I can to have the pipes finished by the 1st of November,
then the shipping starts within the first few days of November. I can't guarantee when people will receive them though. That's out of my hands.

I really don't need to do a lot of work yet, so I'm sure I can be done with all the pipes when the deadline hits.

Sounds like you're on schedule then.

I'd say so. I also think you guys are going to get a really nice pipe.
