Petr Kucera hand crafted an absolutely lovely small pipe that is extra special.  This is Petr' story behind the creation of this pipe.
"I am glad to introduce you The Poppy Preacher Anse - a brand new pipe I made in honor of Rev. Anderson C. "Preacher Anse" Hatfield, thanks to an idea from my dear friend Johan Ribaeus /bossonoxe/ from Sweden.

There is a very well-known story about the Hatfield-McCoy feud. As the Devil Anse is called after the infamous patriarch of the Hatfield clan, the Poppy Preacher Anse pipe represents a tribute to Anderson Hatfield - also called "Preacher Anse" to distinguish between him and William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield. The resulting trial of the feud was presided over by the local justice of the peace, Preacher Anderson Hatfield, who was D.A. Hatfield's cousin, kind and good-tempered in contrast to him.

In Christianity, poppy symbolism is recruited to represent death as a period of tranquil slumber. This association is seen in metaphor as the red petals of the poppy symbolize the blood of sacrificed Christ. Themes of death, resurrection and immortality blossom as the poppy /and the spirit/ never really die, just renew and ascend, what can be seen in this case as a bloodshed between the two feuding families and the story, which subsequently became one of the most well-known feuds in American history.

So when you are just pissed off, take the Devil Anse. And whenever you will be on the way from a church with at least five children and a kind wife that just kissed you under a blossoming apple tree, light the PoppyPreacher Anse.

Wishing good smokes to all of you."
