    Thanks to the crazy generosity of a friend, I managed to acquire the following estate pipes...

    This first one is a no-name large straight stemmed briar... smokes suprisingly well...

    Next up is a no-name bent Smooth Bulldog with nicely done rustication spots, I assume to cover sand pits.. Looks very nice and smokes even better.

    Next up... a Sandblasted London made GBD:Shoreline Straight Bulldog.. this has to be the best smoking wooden pipe, I have EVER smoked to date...

    Thank you sir.. I have to say... versus all my previous briar pipes.. (all 4 of them) the worst of these smokes MUCH better then the best of my previous briars.

    thank you much gentlemen.. Yeah.. that pickaxe is a beast! Its actually slight larger though not quite as long as my "Evil Sultan" large Block meer... but surprisingly lighter then I would have thought.. Its not a long term clencher, but for short spells whilest relaxing, its a really nice smooth cool and LONG smoke..lol

    Well done Darkly, nice set you picked up there, particularly like the axe and GBD, hope you get many years smoking out of them.
