2019 SHPC 30th Anniversary Club Pipe
SHPC 30th Anniversary Club Pipe
We have made our selection for the Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club's 30th Anniversary Club Pipe. Although the gourd calabash was popularized by William Gillette's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes and was never smoked by the great detective in his stories, we all agreed that it would be a fitting choice for our 30th Anniversary pipe since the calabash pipe is always associated with our club's namesake.
We also selected a dark colored gourd because it's classy, distinguished and makes a statement and we like that.
A few details are still being worked out as to where the nomenclature will be inscribed, it will say "SHPC 1989 - 2019" and will come in a box rather than the clam shell case pictured. We hope to have an example of the finished pipe sometime after the Chicago Show.
