...on his work, not the man. Although he may be flattered...

I was perusing random pipe sites and this guy's work made me stop and stare for quite a while...

Some of his other work is good but not my style. These above, especially the top "Snail" I'd start cutting out a kidney for. What a piece. Cool

Heeschen's shapes that i have seen are absolutely fantastic. They almost all have a beautiful, refined and very distinctive style that makes me want to buy every one i come across and the one in your photo is no exception. I have yet to actually click the buy button, but i know it's only a matter of time before i see the one i just cant say no to.

I will see Peter in Vegas tomorrow and tell him of your praises. Yes his work is excellent in every respect and he is a perfectionist to detail as those examples that you posted show.

I love uncle Peters work, and think his signature "P"shape should be put on those shape charts as one of the carved-in-stone classics.

The grain on that Cumberland stem pipe is amazing.

I had to google Peter......Smoking Pipes has a nice inventory but sadly priced well out of my reach.

I have one Heeschen, a squat bulldog (surprise). It's a beaut.
I've been looking forward to meeting him at the Vegas show!

If you haven't met Peter Heeschen be forewarned he's quite a character and loves to joke around. He is a really nice guy.

I too love his work and have a regular "P" shape, a long shank "P" shape, and a small nautilus/snail. As a side bonus both the "Ps" sit up right as I think most will.

I'm disappointed I won't be able to meet him at (and those of you going to) the Vegas pipe show.

Yes, do say to him there's a guy in Reno right now stomping around that I couldn't shake this guy's hand and buy a pipe with kidney money. Laughing Laughing

Funny how some pipes you could shrug your shoulders at and appreciate the craftsmanship and others just make you rifle around your home wondering what you could sell to finance such a purchase. Good thing there's a variety in the spicy-life of piping!
