bought this one off the ebay today. It is the closest thing I've seen to the one dad had in my avatar pic. Pre 1936 Kaywoodie drinkless with Rock Ambera stem.
the better half says its the last one :confused: SOOOO going to have to start selling stuff before buying more. This one cost more than all that I have bought put together.

I’m in a similar boat, I have a ton though 80+ pipes and ~30lbs of tobacco so selling to buy is not an unrealistic expectation for the most part. I bought most of mine before I got married.

I used to work with an alcoholic who was fond of saying, "I'm not drinking anymore. Of course, I'm not drinking any less."

Meanwhile, in Durango, "I'm not buying any more pipes. Of course, I'm not buying any less." Well, actually, I am. Fewer. Just looking for some I know I like to show up as estates and priced well. This one did:

I bought a new BriarWorks Bullmose with the "root beer" acrylic stem a while back to give as a gift, loved it, and I've been looking for another one ever since.

This one was a like-new estate and priced too well to pass up.

It's a beaut! And a root beer Cumberland stem no less. You sure know how to find them!

Not a "purchase" but I'm sure happy I decided to hang onto this one...
