Welcome to Celebration Pipes
Steve Piper Meets El Presidente!
On October 14th, 2017, DaPiper presented former Mexican President Vicente Fox with his unique, 44th anniversary Celebration Pipe, ™ Christened, “El Presidente.” The commemorative 22 k Gold & Platinum Plated Lavastoneware ™ pipe was commissioned by SWCC in appreciation for Mr. Fox’s’ ongoing and tireless efforts to bring cannabis legalization to Mexico and set an example for all Western forward thinking governments to stop wasting time and treasure on Nixon’s tired old “war on drugs”. Mr. Fox spoke on a wide range of cannabis benefits as keynote speaker at the 3rd annual SWCC ( Southwest Cannabis Conference) recently held in Phoenix, Az.
Welcome to the 44th Anniversary Edition of CELEBRATION PIPES … first created on Laie Point, Oahu, as stocking stuffers for Christmas 1973, then happily passed around the SUNSHINE Festival inside DIAMOND HEAD crater on New Years Day, 1974. Each LAVASTONEWARE piece is still handcrafted by DaPiper from our unique ceramic composite, textured with lava rocks, fired to over 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit, and then meticulously plated in either 22kt Gold, Platinum, Opal, Black Coral, Purple Haze, or our exotic Hanalei Blue finishes. Each pipe is encased in a velvet bag and presented in a custom gift box with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and numbered.
