Lee von Erck is rather hard to miss at pipe conventions, being something like eight feet tall. Fittingly enough, his pipes are hard to miss as well, even when sitting amongst trays of other briars. His often rustic shaping style tends to be a clue, but the real giveaway is his sandblasting. Basically, he etches the bejesus out of his briars, leaving them with very deep textures, but also very crisp definition as well - all of which is made readily apparent on this particular deep-chambered Poker.
