Default Asylum edition/club pipe interest thread

Well... SlowT's Boswell thread has broached the idea of a CA edition pipe.

If we are serious about this, it'd be good to know who would be genuinely interested, approx. price range, style and maker.

It'd be great to have the Boswells do it, but of course that may not be feasable for them (in a timely manner anyway). So we may want some other options.

So lets start at the beginning, who is interested, and give a rough price range

1. rx2010 ($80-130)

I'm all in on something like this! Especially if Boswells are able to do it.

1. rx2010 ($80-130)
2. JaKaacH ($79-129)
3. Nabinger16 ($81-131) High roller so far!

How about Senatorov? He makes great pipes! Is he on CA yet? I would be interested in a pipe up to $130! I can't go higher then that though.

Will it be the same shape/design for everyone? do you have any idea on design?

Right now I just want to gauge interest in the idea. It would be one shape with different finish options. In all likelihood

Well since I started this mess, its only right I join in. I would like to keep it under 130, but I could probably manage to go a little bit over...

$50-$100 for a 'newbie' model, not that you'd probably go so low.

Default Re: Asylum edition/club pipe interest thread

so we've got roughly 10 folks down for this (and I'm sure others will show interest later)

so as far as potential makers go, we've had Boswell and Senatorov suggested, and that other fellow, Zeman, who I've not heard of really, but his stuff looks good.

Obviously there are a lot of great artisan makers, but price may become an issue. So if anyone has any larger maker suggestions fire away. I figure Savinelli/Stanwell etc could all be possibilities.

Also, what about shapes? probably nothing too crazy, lets hear your ideas

As far as shape goes, I've been looking for a poker lately. I'm cool with any shape though, whatever the masses want.

Poker sounds good to me too.

Savinelli and Stanwell may be hard to get to do a club pipe. Usually those go to smaller guys, who can take individual order.

I like the idea of Senatorov. I think he'd be up for it and would do a great job within budget.

Jan Zeman does a good job, made 7 club pipes, one for each day of the week, for 7 years. Never heard one bad thing about him, and love his pipe.

Either way, I'm perfectly happy with any of the suggestions thus far!

Default Re: Asylum edition/club pipe interest thread

that is a good read, I hope everyone will take a minute to read it

This is why I'd like to get a shape or two that everyone likes, run it by a maker or two, and see who can work with us

then once we have an agreement for production, I would like to have everyone paid up ahead of time, so we can lump sum the maker and make his life easier

which would be a good thing. I'd like to approach the maker, say, can you make 12 x "bent apple" (for example) @ $110 each shipped

and maybe have two finish options. where maybe the pipe isn't super ornate, but it's well-made, good looking, and commemorates our first full year as a pipe forum
