Shape announcement for the 2016 American Pipe Makers 7 day set competition:

Author Family -

  • -          Roundish shape bowl, from Ball to Author to chubby Apple  (no Billiards or Brandys).
  • -          Bent pipes (and I don’t mean just the stem), the angle between the tobacco chamber and the shank/draft hole is to be less than 90 degrees.
  • -          Symmetric, no blowfish, etc.
  • -          The shank is to be round or oval

     Last year was the free for all where we asked for your take on the Cavalier. This year we are after class and elegance, not innovation.

       All the rest is up to you…. Saddle/taper, smooth/blast etc.  Remember we are placing the pipes in a pre-made display case, so keep your pipes to “normal” sizes.

     The judging will be at the GKCPC Kansas City Pipe Show in June, 2016. More details to follow. 

     Please let me know if you wish to be taken off of this email list.

     Please contact me if you have questions or comments.

    Our mission, “To Support & Promote American Pipe Makers” ….. Good luck to all of you.

2015 Pipe Carver Entries
 

 

The Greater Kansas City Pipe Club, GKCPC, is a social group whose members enjoy Pipes, Tobaccos, and Pipe Collecting.
We gather monthly to share a good smoke, gain knowledge of pipes and tobaccos, sample tobaccos, trade a pipe or two,
and enjoy the camaraderie of our brotherhood of the briar. We also host the Kansas City Pipe and Tobacco Show.
