Santa Fe Pipes visits SHPC
was great having Tony Sanchez from Santa
Fe Pipes with us this past meeting. He brought a nice assortment of
pipes with him, all of which were carved by American pipe carvers and
included pipes by David Jones, Mark Tinsky and Randy Wiley to name a few.
During his presentation, Tony offered us his views on where he feels the
pipe industry is headed. He is extremely impressed with the quality of
briar and workmanship that he's been seeing from the American pipe carvers
and feels that many of the American high grades are as good if not better
than their European counterparts but with a much more reasonable price
tag. He fielded questions from some of the members before sitting back
and enjoying his pipe with the rest of us. It seemed more like he'd been
a member of our club for years rather than visiting for his first time.
Tony also opened up 5 tins of G.L. Pease tobacco which included 2 of Pease's
newer blends, Montgomery & Telegraph Hill and generously donated the remainder
of each tin to our regular raffle.
And just to show you what kind of a guy Tony Sanchez is, before packing
up and heading back to Sante Fe, Tony told me he would offer the readers
of this newsletter a 20% discount off the retail price of any of the American
pipes he has in stock. Just be sure to mention that you read about it
in the Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club Newsletter.
To see some of what he has in stock be sure to check out his website at
Thanks again Tony for a great visit, I hope we can do it again in the
not too distant future.
We'd also like to welcome our newest member Gary
