    It seems like a pretty decent price if you like the pipe.
    Should smoke great.

    Yeah, I think that's a pretty competitive price for that line of pipes. I've heard slightly mixed things about Nordings in general, but it seems to be mostly positive, so personally I wouldn't hesitate to buy it if I had the money and wanted to try a Nording.

    ...the reason why i am attempted since Nording is normally out of my price range, but this one is a bit more moderate in price...

    ........and it is an opportunity to try a Nording without breaking the bank.............

    If you like it, grab it, and its autographed, so it might go up in value later, and you get to see the coloring change, if it does over time.

    Actually, I just got the pipes in today that I traded for....I have to go home and check them out but the wife wasn't impressed with one of them. I will have to see, but they may be going back to the original owner. If so, I will repost the freehand.

    Nording's tend to smoke pretty well, and it's a nice, virgin finish. At almost 1/3 off the MSRP, if you like it, GRAB IT!

    GRAB HIM!

    my question is, does it look anything like the one in the picture? it seems a stock photo if you bought it, the pic is still the same.

    Good question. I bought one today also. First I checked the P&C site and found a very similar Nording for 4-bucks more. I called and asked if they were familiar with Cigars International. The rep said he was familiar with them, but they weren't connected. I asked if theirs was a better pipe -- four dollars better. (OK, this was a little tongue-in-cheek). He just said they look pretty similar -- but didn't offer to meet the price. I was going to get a pipe rack, which would have put me in free shipping, but they were out of stock. At CI the free shipping offer came if I added a 15-dollar lighter or a 35-dollar bundle of cigars to the order. However, their rep said as a "one time" offer they would offer free shipping on the pipe with no additional purchase. Don't know if mentioning it was my first order from them made any difference. Anyway, Albert, I'm betting it won't look exactly like the photo but I'm OK with that and they seem like pretty good folks there.

    Understood. That's why I asked about their return policy. No problem in the first 30 days -- if it is unsmoked. You would have to pay shipping on your end, but I'm thinking if I really don't like it that will be a small price to pay.

    Ended up ordering one from smokingpipes. a few bucks more, but with a few tins in the order, i got free shipping so I got to see the one I was getting and it cost me exactly the same as it would have sight unseen from CI. I was so close to buying it from CI, but I rarely get to throw that kind of cash at a pipe purchase, I just had to be sure I knew what it looked like since there is a huge variation in the shapes of the nording signatures. Im really interested to see how the one you get from CI compares to the photo they have.

    I can post a photo or two in this thread when it arrives in the next week or so, if you like. (I'm interested to see how it looks, too.)
