I just placed my introduction in the appropriate forum, and I'm ready to dive in. So i was in Boswell's shop today and the itch finally got to me. I picked up a sweet number at $75, and I can't help but think its a steal. These things go for just as much if not more on eBay. Certain things in life choose the owner. I saw this, and it opened the case, and got into my hand. It smokes smoother, longer and more tastefully than any of my other pipes. It fits my hand like it was made for me. Very, very weird. It's hard to see it in the picture, but I promise that the grain on it is like looking at a work of art. In a way, it is. I know his son is into making pipes now, and Dan is a great guy. I can't wait to grab one of his as well.
