I almost bought this one just a moment ago:

Danish Estates: Danish Sovereign Smooth (305) (by Stanwell)

I am glad I called, though. I don't generally care for oval shanks. This has an oval shank.
Yeah, but it is particularly sinuous in profile, with a sweeping line following through its uplifted heel, languid transition, and gently-turned shank. For $65!

Still, I'd go for the Algerian briar bent billiard. Apart from the alliteration, it is both charming and playful. :pipe2:
I'm still resisting (so far). But that pipe is an excellent example of a half-bent billiard.

On to others: I held this 1960s Dunhill in my hand yesterday. There was an indication he would take less than the $200 listed price; for a Dunhill in this condition, I am not sure why he would have to.
It is a Group 4 and seems just a bit small for me.

The fever has subsided. I am out on this one. I will leave this here as one of you with a Dunhill urge should snap this up.

Now, back to sniffing out long shanked Upshalls.

I have that shape and size in the Shell Briar finish. It's my birth year pipe.

I just saw this on the smokingpipes homepage slider. It really spoke to me. In fact, I thought, "I haven't bought a pipe in a long time! You deserve it!"

At least I have good taste, I guess. No so sure how wife would feel on me blowing a couple mortgage payments on 1 pipe instead :/

Not my thing, but amazing work.
I wouldn't know whether to smoke it or put it in my transmission.
I've held this pipe in my hands.
That must have knocked a couple of bucks off the resale value, eh? :clown:
I also put the stem to my lips. It was all downhill from there.

For the record, this was before it was sold so the lucky schmuck who shelled out the $1500+ for this one got some ID fingerprints and spit.
It's funny I found this pipe randomly a month ago. Today I found another pipe that I like randomly on the steampunk thread. FredS brought it to my attention that BOTH pipes were made by Nate King who is on this forum. One could call me a Nate King fan.

That's funny. The guy who made this pipe (N8) worked as a transmission specialist for an Indy racing team before he started carving pipes. I have some gears out of a Lola gearbox that he traded for a pipe I made a few years ago. I've been inside street transmissions and even made gears when I was a machinist, but these Indy car gears are absolute works of art. The surface finish and polish on them is immaculate. It's easy to see why a gear head such as N8 would be inspired by them.

Yes, that does make a lot of sense.
