Walt Hettinger’s Prince Shaped Pipe With Thick Bowl and Terrific Sandblast


ITEM DESCRIPTION – Dr. Walter Hettinger of Baltimore, Maryland stunned the pipe world last year when he was the only newcomer to the pipe making scene to have one of his pipes selected for the 2018 Greater Kansas City Pipe Show’s annual North American Pipe Makers 7-Day set of Prince shaped pipes featured in their annual raffle. I have included the photo of that 7-Day Set.

At the recently completed NASPC Pipe Show in Columbus, Ohio I personally saw and was amazed at both the quality of of the pipes and his pricing, which was a combination that made his pipes practically fly off his table as collectors were scooping them up. I was sure pleased when Walt allowed me to bring back eight of his pipes to sell on my website. And this beauty is one of them. Note the perfect execution of the Prince shape and I personally love the thickness of the bowl and the exceptional sandblasting. All going along nicely with the sparkling light tan finish that will allow this pipe to color beautifully as it is smoked. His drilling was spot on, too. Finally, his very successful career as an emergency room doctor allowed him the means to purchase the highest quality well cured briar available to make his creations. I think now would be a great time to grab a terrific smoking pipe from this pipe maker! This beauty will arrive at the purchaser’s mailbox nestled in its original pipe sleeve.
