That was actually the first place I looked, I’m definitely going to show him Wayne’s site!

I kept looking at the Heritage pipes, but, it seems you have to be quick as they are always sold out.

If it's only going to be "one" pipe and money is no object, it's going to have to be a mixture of aesthetics and practicality. I liked Kayden's suggestion, as in it should be sandblasted, for sure, and it needs to have a decent sized shank (for potential drops), as well as a medium sized bowl. I would suggest the lighter, the better, but you want to find something in the healthy medium (1.5-2.5 oz). Anything less gets a bit dainty and will suffer if neglected (say, it's dropped).

A heritage series pipe by Wayne is a good starter. They're cheap, but not too cheap, and made extremely well. I'd probably buy a Nate King or one of Wayne's higher end pipes if I were only going to buy one and money was no object. Chris Askwith is a possibility for me too, as they are classic shapes, nice sandblast, and light.

Smokingpipes has an Askwith billiard in the estate pipe section that would fit this for $200.
