New Pipes from Vollmer + Nilsson

A few months before the Chicago Pipe Show, I emailed our friends Anders Nilsson and Martin Vollmer about some ideas for pipes I wanted them to make. Two were sandblasted versions of Comoy shapes - a saddle billiard and a saddle prince. The 3rd pipe was a copy w/ improvements of an old beat up Dunhill prince I've had for years. The Dunhill has a silver repair band on the shank that gives the pipe an odd look ... that I like. Being to great guys they are, V+N agreed and even seemed enthusiastic about the projects. I picked up the results in Chicago and have been smoking them daily since. Great pipes as usual from the Swedish duo. Thanks Martin and Anders! -T
