In honor of our friend and the founder of the Pipe Smokers Den (PSD) forum, Doug Erwin, we have created a pipe to pay tribute to his memory.
A Missouri Meerschaum Cob is a fitting tribute to a man that spent many hours modifying cobs for himself and others to enjoy. We think this pipe is one that Doug would have loved having in his regular rotation. Doug preferred unfinished cobs with upgraded stems.
For this memorial pipe we selected an unfinished Diplomat 5th Avenue cob, added a Carolina Gent shank, plus a stem type featured on Dagner Pokers, then all dressed up with a nickel band. The result is a unique dedication to the cob-modding patriarch of PSD.
