    Middle row...third from the bottom (I haven't gotten around to taking individual pictures). I got it from Robert Leslie. No idea on the original maker though. It's a good pipe and has a cavernous chamber. If you're toying with the idea of getting a freehand, but don't want to spend a bunch...check out used/estate pipes. I've got a second one on the way.

    Keep your eyes open here. Both of mine were bought in the forum pipe sale section. $25 for that one and $20 for the one that's inbound.

    My $.02...you're rarely going to get a deal on ebay. There are too many people on there. I have done great buying from this place though. I see pipes that I could get locally for x < $10 go for $20+ on there. The same goes for

    The other issue with ebay is that the pipes you get off there are going to be f-ing filthy. If you buy from a forum member, it's going to be in good condition (and not filthy). I wasted more than two hours and 30+ pipe cleaners cleaning out one pipe.

    Maybe it's just me...but this one has a sort of freehand look to it (the shank).
