I considered "give", "send", and "buy" before finally settling on "gift" because I haven't offended anyone's sensibilities in almost two months and I wanted to see just how twisted up hugo could get over two letters.

Whoa now! I wasn't taking your offer literally. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I will go with consensus, but I don't yet own a hyperbole....
Smooth Hyperbole (also a fine name for a jazz trio) with a meerschaum lining should be the selection.

It also serves deference to Dr. Falcon's preference for meers.

I bought a falcon pipe on eBay for $15! Of course this took a month of bidding. Now I need the CPS bowl.

Given enough time, I might be able to get another Falcon pipe for $15. But then there would need to be a list of all the people that want to smoke this pipe. Each would have to promise to use it for a week and then mail it to the next guy.

Perhaps it would be better for each person to buy their own pipe.

Alright, I've done some digging around and contacted TobaccoPipes to see what their stock is.

The first question to ask is how many people are going to want one? Perhaps Fred and Thom can speak to how many they distributed last year and the year before.

Second, do we want to do just one or go with a variety and just have them all engraved?

Third, do you want them ASAP or can you wait?

After speaking with the manager from TobaccoPipes, I have found he has limited stock, as his place is a small business. He called his distributor to see what their stock was and they are limited as well right now. The distributor just reopened because of COVID-19 and, thus, is unable to give an ETA about restocking. So, I've asked Ben (the manager) what he has in stock to get some numbers. Below are the shapes and their details, as well as how many of them are in stock:

HYPERBOLE SMOOTH - 3 in stock ($32)
Image
Weight: 0.8 oz. / 22 g.
Bowl Depth: 1.83 in. / 46.64 mm.
Bowl Outside Diameter: 1.69 in. / 42.96 mm.
Bowl Inside Diameter: 0.87 in. / 22.28 mm.

HYPERBOLE SMOOTH w/ MEERSCHAUM - 4 in stock ($44)
Image
Weight: 1.2 oz. / 34 g
Bowl Depth: 1.24 in. / 31.72 mm.
Bowl Outside Diameter: 1.65 in. / 41.78 mm.
Bowl Inside Diameter: 0.67 in. / 17.01 mm.

SNIFTER SMOOTH - 5 in stock ($32) - Also, has 2 Meerschaum Lined in stock @ $44
Image
Weight: 1.0 oz. / 28 g.
Bowl Depth: 1.25 in. / 31.96
Bowl Outside Diameter: 1.69 in. / 43.11 mm.
Bowl Inside Diameter: 0.88 in. / 22.51 mm

DUBLIN SMOOTH - 5 in stock ($24)
Image
Weight: 0.6 oz. / 14 g.
Bowl Depth: 1.17 in. / 29.75 mm.
Bowl Outside Diameter: 1.33 in. / 34.03 mm.
Bowl Inside Diameter: 0.75 in. / 19.08 mm.

ALGIERS SMOOTH DARK - 3 in stock ($24)
Image
Weight: 0.6 oz. / 18 g.
Bowl Depth: 0.93 in. / 23.85 mm.
Bowl Outside Diameter: 1.56 in. / 39.80 mm.
Bowl Inside Diameter: 0.89 in. / 22.80 mm.

All the shapes are as close to a Dublin shape as we can get, except the Snifter (only there because a few expressed interest). All of these are available immediately to ship to the engraver (whoever that is). If you all want to hold out for a particular shape it could be months (my guess) if that distributor has to play catch-up. So, what do you all want to do? If we dilly-dally the above stock will decrease most likely.


For record, the most I can do with this thing is place the initial order and have them shipped to the engraver, if we do it ASAP (if not, I can't even do that for ya). Someone else will have to be responsible for shipping to each of you individually.

1st preference is for the Algiers.
2nd Dublin.
3rd non meer-lined hyperbole.
The meer-lined is out of my price range at the moment. The snifter is ugly.
I need to wait at least until Friday before I put any money towards this. I can also wait.

If we purchase bowls right away there will not be one common shape for all. I am ok with that. I want the Snifter (non-meer).

I am fine with waiting if the decision is to get one common shape for all if it is thought that sufficient stock will be available before the end of the year. I would still want the Snifter but I realize I would likely be out voted. I am ok with that.

I am definitely in on this.
