    Just made my reservations for the show!
    Are any other P-S-Forumites going to be there? I think it would be great to get together for a beverage or dinner, etc.

    :cheers:

    He is supposed to have a smaller version of the morta - like THIS ONE I'm getting from him - at the show.

    Chris describes it as "pale jade", so I'm going to presume acrylic.

    Before you drop a dime on a morta you have to checkout Paolo Beckers table IMO nobody comes close to his morta pipes!:startl:

    I'll definitely check it out! I've already entered into an agreement with Chris Askwith, and I plan to honor it. I really like that pipe!
