    IMHO we should not focus this thread on picking apart this post. We should rise above, move on and talk about how lucky we are to have Tinsky make us a custom pipe and how great it will be to get..

    Hi Guys,

    I heard back from Mark and have some info for you. I have sent a follow up email to clarify a few things on the finish/stem color possibilities and when I have that information I'll post it.

    However, Mark has suggested we use mazur birch for the stem insert. He describes this wood as a beautiful blonde wood with birdseye in it. If you search Google images for mazur birch you can see some examples of the wood. He hasn't had this wood in stock for some time but will get some for our pipe if we would like.

    Anyway, knowing Mark we'll get answers to our questions pretty quickly. He's very good about answering emails.

    As for the pricing, I'll check with Mark, but I told him initially that we would probably have 20 to 30 pipes purchased in total (based on previous years I figured that was a ball park figure) so he based his pricing on that figure.

I do feel for the guys who's budgets won't allow for the purchase, but I think this will turn out to be a very nice pipe for those who can. I'm going to try and set things up with Mark so that members who want to/need to save some $ will have time to do so. I'm hoping he will do direct sales from his website and keep the option to buy open all year. I don't know if he will be able to do that, but when I hear back from Mark I'll let you all know.

    I think that would be a great and workable option for those that can't afford the price upfront. Saving $25 a month can seem a lot less daunting than $185. Hopefully he'll give us that option. Thanks for the work here Indigo!

    That will be an elegant solution for some, definitely. Thank you, John!

    There's no honest way you can infer that from what I wrote. Your finances are your own very personal business, and this is an optional luxury purchase -- of which I didn't even vote on. Do you have a chip on your shoulder for every piper who cast a vote Tinskey's way? I hope not. If I even wanted yet another pipe, I can't say I would be eager to drop nearly $200 either. Not to take anything away from Tinsky -- by all reports Tinskey pipes are worth every dollar in both aesthetic and engineering, but it is a considerable sum. Still, if this optional luxury purchase is somehow a "have to" there's not a huge difference in saving for a $100 pipe from a $185 one. I can't be the only one with cellared tins of stuff I'm no longer interested in or estate pipes I never smoke that could sell to smokingpipes, PipeStud, et al. for the price of postage.

    ETA: You know what? This isn't even about Tinskey and his pricetag. If I was voting, I would have pushed Johs hard. I am happy that Peterson didn't win because:

    The Puff Pipe stays handmade for three years in a row.
    It is more unique and not nearly as easy to come by.
    The drilling/engineering will be reliably impeccable across the board.
    It's made in the USA for the first time.
    It is arguably the best yet. This should only get better every year.

    Any man who checks his watch while smoking his pipe is doing it wrong.

    Im gonna just leave it alone.


    As for the Tinsky pipe it is a great looking pipe and I bet many will enjoy it as the Puff 2012 pipe. Thanks to the gents who have put this together and all their work!
