...to pay for a pipe that is. I was perusing a few websites that sell estate pipes and stumbled across a Dunhill estate pipe that was listed for $1800, original price was $2300. It was #4 of only 500 made so clearly it was a rare pipe and falls into the collecting category. However, I got into pipe smoking because I enjoy it and because of the nostalgia of it (grandfather/father/then me). Considering my pipes range from $7 to $100, I can't wrap my head around spending that kind of money and not being able to smoke it. I grasp the rarity of the make and likely the rarity of the briar it was made from (Amber Root Christmas Pipe) but it just blows my mind. If I spend that kind of money on something, I want to use the dang thing! All that to say, what's your limit?
