    With tax return season upon us, I should shortly have a little extra scratch to play with. That being said, I started looking through several sites of custom pipe makers, and came across this one.
    Last night, I sent an email off to Donald Kesling with my thoughts on a custom, commissioned piece and am waiting to hear back from him.

    Has anybody here commissioned a pipe with him? Thoughts? Opinions?

    I checked Kesling's website. He certainly does a lot of out-of-the-box freestyles. I like some (check out the briar "cob") and many are just to far out there for me.

    That said, however, you probably have a blank slate because I'm thinking this guy can likely make anything you want and his prices seem fair as well.

    Here's mine that I really love. I got it from Don at the Kansas City Show in 2011.

    From what I've seen on his web site, I don't think his work is quite in line with the prices he's charging.

    Good looking pipe, Kevin!

    Hope he gets back to me soon. If he is willing, Id really like to get the ball rolling.

    He certainly has some inventive looking pipes. I like some of them. That popeye poker is certainly something would like on my desk.
