I am pleased to announce a special edition Michael Parks pipe commemorating the 15th anniversary of NASPC. The pipe is a large classic Parks sandblast bent with tapered stem. There will be a maximum of 15 pipes sold stamped with Michael's standard nomenclature, including the date of 2012, as well as special stamping indicating each pipe as numbered 1 through 15 and a NASPC stamp.

Approximate dimensions of the pipe (these are hand-made pipes) will be length 6 3/4," bowl height 2 3/8," bowl width 1 7/8," shank diameter (at the stem) 3/4," and chamber 7/8." Stain choices are black with red undertones or amber brown contrasting. Stem choices are black Ebonite, Cumberland or amber acrylic. If stain and stem preferences are not selected, then the pipe will be finished in black with red undertones with a black Ebonite stem.
The price is $625 for NASPC members only. Orders will be open until Friday, June 1 or until 15 pipes and ordered and paid for. The pipes will be delivered for the NASPC show on August 25, 2012.

Note: No pipe order will be recorded until payment is received. Pipes can be paid for by sending a check or money order to the NASPC PO Box or by PayPal using bill@naspc.org. PayPal payments must include another $25 for PayPal fees. The pipe's price includes S&H and insurance in the U.S. and Canada. Overseas payments must also include an extra $40 for postage. Limit one pipe per NASPC member.
