Well, it takes all kinds.
Piersel was tasked by the North American Society of Pipe Collectors to create and craft the Pipe of the Year for 2020. The pipe are in two sizes, a regular and an XL and is an author, in a red stain with a red cumberland stem. Just got mine early last month, I gave away the regular and kept the XL for myself.
I’m not North American and I’m no collector, but what the hell.
It takes all kinds.
