    A short shank Barbi brandy. I'm still astounded that I got it at the price I did on eBay! Happy, happy, happy!

    I'd been watching a pipe on eBay for a while; even after it had ended the first time I waited for it to be re- listed. It was a lot of three, but I was only interested in one, a Ben Wade Brogue Canadian shape with a diamond shank. I messaged the seller and explained I only wanted one of the three and made an offer on the BW. We messaged back and forth a few times dickering on price and he eventually gave me all three for a very reasonable price.

    I'll probably sell the othe two. I'll photograph it when I get it and clean it up. I've been working on a few seven day sets from three pipe manufacturers. This puts me at five BW Brogues. I really love the blast on those pipes.

    I know! I love them. And they're not expensive or too hard to find. Although I having a hell of a time finding a #65 poker. But that's the fun, eh! What type do you have?

    Not until you get it out of the box. It's too shiny and clean. spew some saw dust on that little guy.

    I'm not at all a pipe carver builder maker what ever the term is. But I am a finish carpenter and cabinet builder with a complete wood working shop and machinery. If you are ever having any tool or machine issues feel free to ask.

    I have a nice one of those that does not get used often enough. I could roll it out if there is something you need turned.

    Just got a Peterson Irish Made Army #68. The tobacconist I got it from was awesome too, in giving me a few flakes of Dunhill Flake and a sample of one of his own blends. This pipe is amazing. It's not even broken in yet, and it is a sweet, cool smoking pipe! I love it! It is my favorite so far. And with this pipe, thus begins my life with PAD... :bangin:
