    Awesome. Definitely worth looking into. Mind sending them a message?

    While those truly are beautiful pipes, they're too much like the meerschaum 2011 Puff Pipe the group had made by Altinok, the one I almost didn't not get:



    It will most likely be many years before the group gets another meer.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Just received an answer from Yavuz Korpefiliz owner of Storient Meerschaum..
    He said they could make the 2013 pipe for reasonable price like 120 usd. since it would be a group pipe and he just wanted a minimum number of 20 pipes from us for that price which is very possible ?
    He said we could choose our model or models here and they could make it..

    You can contact him too : storient@yahoo.com

    I think we should vote that.. I am a meerschaum freak ok but I might like a briar from balkovec or a smilar pipe maker.However;If we decide on a meer from Storient count me in .. I love their quality and their pipes are perfect smokers.

    Nice story on the website, too. So thanks, Bill.

    I got an email back from Erik Nording this morning... He said that if the club wants a freehand they will definitely be able to help us, but he notes that they will not all look entirely alike.... I think we all knew that already. He also said that it would have to be through his North American distributor, and that he would be asking them to contact me. This sounds awfully familiar, given what I was told of the nording attempt last year... But I will soldier on.

    Hi Guys. I haven't had too much Puff time lately as I've recently returned to school full time so combined with work I haven't had much free time. I just had a chance to catch up on this thread. Glad to see DQ has it going again for 2013.

    As I was the one who talked with Eric, et al, last year I figured I'd chime in here. It does sound the same as last year, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. One of the issues with the distributor last year was the fact that we wanted all of the pipes to be of the same, classic shape (a bulldog). The distributor sold the pipes in batches of 5 different shapes so it made it difficult for them to meet our order. Also, there was an issue with getting Eric to stamp the pipes for us as the pipes were already here and Eric was back in Europe. I have a feeling that a freehand might eliminate the identical shape issue and that with such an large lead time (still 2.5 months until 2013 even begins) stamping, etc, might not be too much to overcome. I also believe a vendor will have to be chosen to sell the pipes, but Eric sells on all the big sites so I'm sure SP or PnC or someone else could handle that for us. Or maybe the distributor could ship to someone here who would send them on. Not sure how that would work with sales tax, etc, though. Anyway, both Eric and his distributor couldn't have been nicer to talk to and deal with last year. I'm sure they will help Puff out if there is any way they can.

    Also, Sebastian was very nice to deal with as well. He seemed interested as well. I think there is a good chance that he'll be interested in the Puff 2013 pipe.

    I also know that no matter how it goes you'll all end up with a great pipe like in past years. I'm with DQ though. Don't base too much on these discussion threads. In most cases the vote draws more people than the discussion so the actual vote can be surprising. Last year from the discussion threads you would have thought the Pete would have won easily, but in the end the Tinsky edged out the Pete in the actual vote. I'll stay out of the specifics this year as I won't be buying the pipe. I've made so many pipes for myself in the past couple of years that I don't need any more pipes at the moment. In fact, I'm going to be selling all my pipes that don't have a sentimental value, so I'll have to resist the temptation to add a Puff 2013 to the old gang. That is until I see what beauty you guys select. Now if I can get the wife to buy the Puff 2013 as a present for me that would give it a sentimental value...hmmmmm.....where there is a will, there is a way, as they say.

    That would be my thought as well as most of us think of briar as the 'main pipe material'.

    Fingers crossed that a deal can be reached with Nording's US distributor
