Where You Are Valued & Appreciated! ITEM DESCRIPTION – Unsmoked! From the well known and highly respected Texas pipe maker, Bill Walter, comes this slightly bent thick Apple shaped piece with a terrific grain pattern that shows off straight grain and birdseye. And check out the elegant slim stem on this piece. It will surely be a comfort to smoke. And even more impressive about the Walther pipes that I have listed is the fact that Bill has even discounted these pipes to give us a price break. So these pipes are very affordable. I have often stated that I own several Walther pipes and believe that the well cured wood that he uses and his great attention to detail regarding the mechanics, make his pipes immanently wonderful smokers. More information about pipe maker Bill Walther follows this pipes size/weight info below. Just over 1-3/4 inches. Just under 1-1/4 inches. More regarding Bill Walther and his pipes. Finally, after a long and varied professional career architecture, design, management, real estate, et al. In other fields, I was able to retire in 2013, and pursue my love of pipe making full-time. I have always been drawn to artistic pursuits, and it is important to me to be able to produce beautiful, functional and enduring work that can be appreciated and enjoyed by others. Having been a dedicated pipe smoker, collector and maker of pipes most of my adult life, my choice of “creative outlet” for this new phase of my life was, of course, predetermined. I would like each design to be a step forward artistically. For that reason, I almost always complete one before moving to the next. I use only high-quality German ebonite because of its known superiority in feel, appearance and resistance to oxidation. I want each pipe to be a pleasure to hold in the mouth or in the hand, as well as a visual work of art. I will not, however, sacrifice structural integrity or proper internal engineering for aesthetics or uniqueness, as the functional purpose of the pipe is obviously to be a lasting, durable “companion”, with excellent smoking characteristics. I don’t expect to ever achieve the perfect pipe for everyone, but my reward will be the pleasure of knowing that I did my best, and hopefully brought enduring pleasure and satisfaction to a fellow pipe smoker.
