A beautiful pipe from Bodo Falkenried of Munich, accompanied by a handwritten letter:
Dear TS – Friend and Pipe Affiliate,
Your always warm and heartfilling hospitality and your friendship makes me feel at home in Singapore.
I’m confident that we’ve met ages before, maybe in a different time and space.
Dietmar Boeck, one of the best pipe makers from good old Bavaria made this pipe for you – with my guidance.
This is pure briar, no spots, no fillings – and most important for me – no paste inside the bowl.
Enjoy this pipe – my spirit is “built in”!
