That one doesn’t speak to me as much as his Rhodesian they just posted in the estate pipes. Now $135 . . . Time to start standing on the corner with a sign “Please help me buy a pipe, any amount is appreciated.”

I have a cases set of billiards I’ll take a pic of for you, sir. They’re convenient in a way you might not have thought of: perfect for trips and don’t smell in your pocket or hand luggage.

My rule is this: If I dream about the pipe, I buy the pipe (well, if I can afford it).

I'm of the opinion that a paneled pipe, executed well, is rare beauty. If not done well, they just come across as clunky blocks. From what I've seen, the French, English, and Germans are the best at them.

I do love a good paneled pipe.

I know exactly how you feel. Last week a really sweet bamboo billiard by Cardinal House Pipes popped up on SP for $120. I really don't have the jack but it was so perfect. While debating it someone bought it. I found my self just a wee bit upset it sold even though I should not have even considered buying it . . . . but it was so perfect.

Be careful, bamboo can be very addictive.

Actually Jim I think it was a post you made about a bamboo pipe and then looking at them that got me seeking them out. In a way I guess I am learning from you . . .

Be very careful...Jim and Durango and others around here, including me, can be a bad influence when it comes PAD and the perfect pipe.

When I joined here, I owned two pipes...lets just suffice it to say there are a lot more than two now 8O
