The 2015 NASPC Pipe will be made by Lee Von Erck. The 2015 NASPC Von Erck will be limited and numbered to a maximum of 25 total pipes.

This will be our very first smooth finish NASPC pipe! Approximate dimensions are 6.3 inches long by 2.2 inches high, with a bowl depth of 1.8 inches and weighing in at 1.6 oz. Each pipe is hand made, with slight variations. The stain will vary from medium to dark brown, with a Cumberland stem. The price will be $590, which includes domestic shipping and insurance. Those of you that know Lee's pipes, will also know that this is quite a value. The pipe is limited to 1 pipe per member until the cutoff ordering date of Jan 9, 2015. You must be a current member of NASPC to purchase one.

We expect to have all pipes made by June 2015, hopefully by May 2015. We will ship all of them at the same time after they are completed. Payment is required at time of ordering as follows: Send check or money order payable to NASPC to NASPC, PO Box 9642, Columbus, OH 43209. To pay via Paypal: Pay $605 to naspc@graphictouch.biz.
