    So after being given alco bowls i was immeadiately onto ebay for a stem, and i found straight away that ended tonight.
    So i kept my eye on it and watched it slowly rise in price.
    This evening the bidding war started and for fifteenminutes i was the highest bidder and i got out bid seconds before the auction ended, it was a massive kick in the teeth.
    But i like organisation and just incase i rang round some tobacconists scattered about in England yesterday afternoon and i have sourced one that does brand new alco pipes.
    Brilliant yes but part of me was kind of looking foreward to restoring a pipe and bringing it back to new, they are more alcos on the bay but im choosing just not too wait :D.

    Order is going in tomorow, pics of the new pipe and seven bowls to follow.

    Craig, you can always bid on more Alco's while waiting.

    I think I have turned into a true metal head. Bought two falcons, traded for a third, bought a comet, and bought two Gillette super speed razors, two colgate shaving stick tins, and brass tubing... All this in just under a month. I like shiny stuff! :D

    Gunslinger,

    I want to offer the utmost apologies if I sniped anyone today. I didn't snipe the aforementioned alco, but I did snipe this lot of 30 pipes...

    i dont hold any hard feelings to the person who sniped me, after all they must be a good pipe if there was a bidding war.
