Walt Hettinger (KC Pipe Show Award Winner) Well Grained Canadian Shaped Pipe W/ Unique Stem


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 pipes featured in their annual raffle. And 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 Canadian shape, the handsome grain and the way Hettinger contrasted the stain to bring out the highlights and the intriguing stem work. 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.
