I cannot edit the original post, but here's an update.

I spoke on the phone with Mr. Robert Blatter himself. Very nice gentleman! Here's some info for y'all if we went ahead with this option:
  • You can see more pictures of this pipe at this link. Yes, the finish/stain would be the same - It is #5 on the page)
  • There would be no minimum order required.
  • $65 USD / $80 CAD plus shipping
  • He would prefer only one payment. I don't know how we might do this - given the exchange rate always fluctuating and what not and the number of Americans on here, perhaps a trusted American member is better for us to send our money to for paying Mr. Blatter? We can discuss if needed.
  • He does not have a laser engraver - he could stamp "CPS 2018 POY" if we like (though he's missing a few letters right now, he said he could get)
  • Prefers to ship all pipes to one address - so we could ship to N8 for engraving?
  • Upon confirmation of our decision, his turn around time would be "Oh, about a month." (that's when I told him we're likely looking in the neighbourhood of 20 pipes)
  • He wanted us to know that they would not all be the same length given the difference in blocks but would be the same size otherwise
Hey look! They have a real author shape!

I can't seem to vote here via Tapatalk; but I'd be another yes!

Have we X'd the i.m. Rusty stamping?

I personally am up for it, but CPS 2018 is fine too.

I barely knew Rusty, but he was always helpful.

My opinion hardly matters, as I most likely will not buy one, but this looks like a great idea at a great price.
