To acquire one of these.
I love this pipe!
Very nice, good luck on your quest!
That red hue, the deep rustification, and that gold and green band? Just beautiful...
I guess I should have mentioned it's a Peterson Emerald Zulu.
I figured it was a Pete, and Zulu's is one of my favorite bends, but don't have a Pete in that bend..yet
There's a lot that I've looked at before deciding to embark on this quest that just didn't pop to me like this one does.
I hear Zulu's are great for flakes, too.
I have yet to try a flake in mine as of yet, might give that a shot later
Not a lot of 268's showing up online either
Yeah, they're pretty limited. The ones I do find have either this or that not quite how I want it, and at this point I'm just not going to compromise. I will have this pipe!
This one sure isn't bad, though...
For a second there, I thought I might be able to help you out. But, my Pete #268 is a Donegal Rocky, with silver band: You're right about them being superb pipes for flakes.
I'm quite fond of the banded ones(both of my Petes are), but my Zulu's are smooth..again...sofar
On the ebay one, the price seems nice for a banded, it worth a little less because its nickel vs silver, but still nice, and no polishing on the nickel
Might be a great choice while you search for the other one!
OR.. if you want to take a shot at it, and have silver instead of nickel, just an estate vs new
Thanks Thuber, but I just can't do the bidding thing anymore. I get so emotionally invested, and always lose! Buy it now or nothing for me from now on.
Is that Donegal something you're willing to trade, Terry?
Well the nickel banded isn't an auction, its just a reg sale
I must have missed that link? Are you talking about the one I posted?
I'll give it a bid and see what happens. Hopefully these pipe bidders aren't as competitive as the recurve bow crowd is.
its not a bid, if you put in your "bid" you just bought a pipe
its a buy it now, same as walking into a store
Nice to see your old avatar back. Now I can pick out your posts easier.
There are 5 still available
Oh, I was talking about bidding on the one with the silver band. The buy it now price on the nickel one is higher than PAD control will let me go right at this point.
