    Nice bent, sandblasted L'Anatra for 120.

    My rusticated Billiard was 156, and it's an awesome pipe.

    This one has a good looking blast, and a smallish chamber but still substantial enough for a satisfying smoke. If you've ever been curious about this brand, I bet this will probably be a good pipe at a great price. Silver banded and everything!

    Dammit, Nesta. You've already stirred my TAD. Now you're making me buy pipes too? :byg:

    I like my L'Anatra a lot! It's heavy, but it's good if you're not a clencher, or if you're watching TV or something. It's a fine smoking pipe - not the best, but darn good. The BST and Baki are both better, but I love it.

    That said, I only have the one and have no idea why this one is so reasonably priced. I can't guarantee it would be a good pipe. But I would expect it would be, and if I hadn't just recently bought the new Stanwell, I'd snatch it up. If I can't have it, it would be nice to see someone here buy it :)

    What's the little thingy on top of the stem? I think that would be a deal breaker for me, unless it serves some real important purpose.

    Lol, it's a silver goose head. It's purely decorative, they do tiny "hood ornaments" on many of their pipes as a change of pace from the inlaid branding many pipe makers use. Mine had the 3D silver goose head on the stem, I think it's neat :)

    well...it's "L'anatra" italiano for "the duck" - and the pipes are graded in "uova" - eggs

    Maybe they priced it wrong. It's up to $196 now.

    There used to be an eBay vendor where you could buy new L'Anatra pipes for a good price with a little stealthy sniping. He's since closed up shop and moved to China. His supply of L'Anatras dried up with the move.
