This pipe was made in 1999 and sold shortly after finishing. Last August 2007 it showed up at the NASPC show with someone from Texas, who intended to trade it for 2 hawkbills.

Marek from BAC Art purchased the pipe. The bit with the pipe was not the original so Mark had me make 3 new ones. The result is below. If Marek is at a show that you attend stop by his display and see this unique piece.

This pipe was originally a special order for Bill Koytk, later purchased by Marek from BAC.

He asked me to put an antler extension and make a stand from the remaining antler.
