    International Pipes and Accessories [ makers of Dr. Grabow / dills cleaners ] sent a price list today with a cool promotion . I wish my scanner was working ... then I wouldnt have to type so much . Anyway , It's their 80th year and they're making a " special 11 " pipe from hand selected briar that will have a rich burgundy color never before used by Grabow . They will be available untill September 2011 and then they wont be made again . The pipe will be stamped " Special 11 " and there is a straight and a bent in smooth or rustic . They are only available via mail order customers and are priced at 25 bucks for smooth and 24 bucks for rustic .
    Of note , It's the last of the Grabow Vikings [ falcon knock offs ] and they are selling them for 20 bucks smooth and 19 bucks rustic .
    Also , they have a special on ' Scotch Plaid " roll up pouches for 2.00 [ very cool ] along with a free tamper on limited basis .
    If you buy a pipe there is no shipping .... a good deal imo . Thought I'd pass it on

    Looks like they do have a website, but don't have a marketplace on it. There's a page for "specials" that's currently empty, but I'll bet your promotion shows up there at some point. http://www.drgrabow.net/

    If they do , I'd be suprised being they said it was for mail order customers only ... but I guess if they've got some left over they'll post it come september . In a way I kinda like getting stuff in the mail ... not seeing much of that anymore ya know

    I got my circular last week. Not really in the market for a Dr. Grabow, but this mail order only throw back has me intrigued. Before its over, I may just pick one up.

    Way cool Ruff! Thanks for sharin' / spreadin' the wealth! I like Grabow pipes, have a few, and will probably score one or two just to be in on the ride.

    I thought hard about getting a smooth bent, the shape looks pretty cool and I'm definitely intrigued by the 'unique burgundy finish.' Plus they say they're only using 'select' briar... for whatever that's worth, I guess everybody says that.
    I've restrained myself thus far, but if one of you guys picks one up and gives it a good review I may break down.

    Good find Rurfinogold. This sounds interesting, and I especially like that they're including a tamper and free shipping. There are a couple of photos of them on the Dr Grabow Collector's forum, but I'd like to see some more before ordering one for myself.
