Becker smooth acorn

I’d love Becker pipes even if the family history were not so extraordinary. That history just makes them that much more special.
I made this one a few years ago. It's kind of, sorta, quasi like that one. I'll sell it to you for half of whatever that Becker is going for.

Image
Yours is lovely JM.
The Becker is listed at $1,160.

Gulp.
$580 it is then. I just saved you a bunch of money.
This is why I love this place. What's helping each other out. JMG is so considerate.

I see why that is a 1500 pipe, that's beautiful.

I thought I had it down, I thought I knew my next step and purchase, heck I had been stairing and comparing this one pipe for the last two weeks. It is a nice bent billiard. Then, I see her on ebay, a straight billiard, very dignified yet a little rusticated to knock it down to a fine man's pipe but not a black tie affair kind of thing. I have been looking at bents and knowing that is the direction I wanted to go. I even knew which particular pipe . . . so I ignored all that and bid on the straight billiard that caught my eye. Well in another day we will see.

Thanks, but unfortunatley someone else thought this was a great pipe too, about $40 greater than I thought (not sure how high he would have gone though). Oh well, there is still the bent I have been drooling over for weeks. :bacon: :cheese: :taco: :chili:

I don't typically care for swirly acrylic stems but that one, on that pipe looks good. I think because it's so slim and trim it doesn't offend my eye.
