Bing, Anders & Martin


I sent this picture of Bing Crosby in Holiday Inn to friends and pipe makers Vollmer & Nilsson. I asked if they thought they might be able to make a similar panel billiard for me. They wrote back that they hadn't made one before but would try. Well dang, they did a fine job. They made 2 trying to get a smooth, but both needed to be sandblasted. I didn't especially want a smooth and was happy to leave that decision to the brothers.Anyway- I love this pipe. It smokes great- so great I have smoked it more than once a day several times since I picked it up in Chicago. And I think even though it is a blast, V&N captured the essence of the original. That might be because they listened to Bing croon while they made the pipe. Martin tells me Anders has 6 1/2 hours of Bing on his ipod. I went to the right guys for this one. -T
