Canada. France. What's the difference, eh?

Drool, yeah. I like that. Might be small for some others. I like the briar stem, but I think Rusty might laugh at it. I wonder it this is a one-off or if it's a production line thing?

Since logistics haven't been brought up yet, I'll enter a thought...

I know Nate has his new shop set up now, and if he still has his laser engraver, he still has our logo from the 2016 POY Grabow. So we could do the same as we did that year, make the bulk purchase (possibly squeezing out a deal in the process) and then send to Nate for engraving. That way we can support our friend's business again and not have the hassle of trying to get the manufacturer to stamp them for us.

I do not know Rusty as well as most of you but this seems like a very nice way to honor him. All the ideas discussed so far are fine: shape that Rusty liked, made in Canada, laser engrave.

There is one request I have when selecting the shape. Straight pipes just do not work for me. A little bend is very helpful for me. 1/4 bend or less. Even the Bing's Favorite shown in the post before this would, I believe, lower the bowl just enough for me.

If some folk really want straight, would it be possible to have 2 versions, one straight and one bent? I certainly do not want to make this overly complicated but that is one design detail that for me is important. Others might feel the same. All the other shape details I can go with the flow.

I am rather enjoying my 2017 POY and am looking forward to enjoying this year's.

Rusty was the only bent Canadian I've known.
