I've wanted this one for over a year and it is still for sale!

This one has grown on me too.

Jose Rubio, in my opinion, is one of the best out there. This latest full bent of his pulls at my heart strings.

I am seriously considering buying a Grabow, not because I can't afford a better pipe, but because I really like how this Grabow looks and because Grabow pipes I have owned before really did smoke very well.

Any thoughts?

Yes. Do it. Last night I smoked a Grabow I bought for $5 out of their throwaway bin when I visited their factory last year, and I was reminded how great they really do smoke.

I'm a sucker for the "Vintage Ropp pipes"

I've collected a couple over the years and gifted and or put some vintage Ropps in various box passes here and there.

I've never had a bad Ropp. Their vintage "Stout" series are great as well.

I love Ropp.

I’ll admire it from a distance.
