I note that the GKCPC has announced the theme shape for this year's carving contest: The Prince. Love that shape.

Nice. I’m actually going to enter this year. For real this time. :wink:

In my small collection of artisan pipes, I have princes from Scottie, Sasquatch, Jason Thompson, and Joe Hinkle.
I am somewhat hesitant about attempting to make something of this caliber, but at least I have some decent examples. :) :)

Step out there and go for it Doc. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". It won't be until September so you have plenty of time.
While you're at it, come to KC for the show. Obviously, it's nothing like Chicago but it's fun and the people are great, the venue is great and the KC barbeque is outstanding!
But, best of all, you would get to meet our curmudgeon in residence, Lonesome George (former member of "The Prints"). I heard they threw him out because he was just too pretty.

This should be a really interesting contest, particularly because the prototypical Prince pipe is a very specific shape.

It'll take some real thought into how to ride the line between traditional enough to satisfy the theme but unique enough to stand out from the pack. Reminds me a bit of the figure skating on TV at the moment. Do you go traditional and win with impeccable attention to detail, or do you go for bold and risk landing your face.

Different from this past year's aesthetic free-for-all but no less compelling. Well...who am I kidding. Maybe Nate King will try and make a Prince out of an actual Prince.
