In the recent issue of P&T (Summer 2012) you can read a nice article about Peter Heeschen. He is a pipemaker loved around the world not only for his sense of humor and affability, but for his pipes as well. First and foremost Peter makes wonderful smoking machines. While he makes only a small number of different shapes, they vary quite a bit with accents, though getting a dark, sandblasted piece scarcely makes anyone wish for anything more. This lovely Dublin is just this sort of pipe. Note that the stem is a military-style connection.
