    If I smoke some really funky looking pipe, maybe I will feel less like this guy:

    In deed, I like that pipe. I don't usually care for that colour but it works well in that arrangement.

    Well, there's another one on sale at that website (bottom corner of the photo). It's almost exactly the same, but the stem is straight instead of bent. They're about $100 I think.

    Since the pipe has a bumble-bee/wasp coloration, I would recommend dedicating it to the granulated Perique, so you'll get the full experience. I have a couple of ounces of the stuff jarred up, I bought it thinking I'd try my hand at blending, then decided I'd leave it to the pro's. Plus I wanted to say I'd smoked straight Perique, once. Now I'm thinking of turning most of it into snuff as described on another thread that I'm too lazy to search for right now.

    All jokes aside, nice haul!

    That certainly is an interesting looking pipe, I haven't seen one like it before. I really like it!

    Yeah, the pipe looks pretty wild. ;) Hope it looks cool in person.

    Has anyone tried any of those tobaccos?
