He was outside smoking every time I went to the bar.Duly noted. We tried to do something about the chairs, mostly for safety reasons. Last year, two it three actually broke. A water cooler sounds like a good idea to me.
The bar had bottled water. Too bad that the hotel wouldn't setup the bar where they did last year connected to the tent. They said that they didn't want to subject their staff to smoke. Ironically, both times that I walked up to the bar, the bartender was outside smoking a cigarette.
That's me there checking the tobacco for unburnt bits when they finished. One of the less fun jobs for the UPCA. Lol.
Thanks! I’ll check it out. This is my first Pascucci. Enjoying it so far.You don’t come across to many people smoking Mario Pascucci’s pipes. I’ve had one before, been keeping my eye out for another. I like the wild colors he’s starting to make on his stems recently.
Enjoy that one, looks nice.
Thanks for sharing the pics.
If you aren’t aware LePipe.it sells his pipes.
They wanted to try the malort with us after we served it following the fast smoke. They had never had the US version and said it was very authentic to what they drink at home, but a little sweeter. Amazing guys to chat with. I was shocked when they said they are trying to come to Capitaland Pipe Show in only our second year.Nice shot of Anders and Martin. Really great guys; spending time with them is a highlight of any show.
Yeah, he is an extraordinarily talented carver. I think once he gains some more notoriety his pipes will be in as high demand as Iafisco, Asteriou, etc. His sandblasts are extraordinary for an Italian carver. Smokingpipes is now listing his pipes (and currently has a few available, including an amazing (danish) swan he made so that will help). In fact SP bought several more of his pipes at the show to list on their site. See photo below of him holding his Swan (left) next to a 1967 Sven Knudsen I took at the show.Absolute stunner and Angelo is a good dude. I will be purchasing more of his very reasonably priced pipes.

Yeah, and if J Alan made it, it would be $2,000. It’s all relative and all debatable. Pricing is an organic beast with many extraneous variables.This pipe for $850, I don’t consider this reasonably priced at all. Maybe that’s just SPC jacking up the price.
If you want to talk about reasonable, George Boyadjiev, will make a custom commission just like this for $350.
