    So on Mars' website there is a box of basket briar pipes. 20 bucks for the box, doesn't say how much is in it.

    I was wondering, are these worth investing in? Are they any good, or should I look elsewhere for a briar pipe?

    Here's the link

    For the price, I say go for it! What the heck, seconds and basket pipes can be really good smokers, and for the most part you can pay anywheres from $20 to $40 a piece in the B&M for just one.

    I think I might. I can get a few decent briars for less than one Grabow. I just don't know what size, etc the pipes will be.

    I don't believe they mean that it's $20 for the entire box. It says to choose straight or bend, so i believe they intend on sending you just 1 out of the "basket pipe box"

    You might be mistaken if you think you are getting the contents of the whole basket there.
    Seems from the drop down choices, you need to select bent or straight.
    That would seem to me that you are choosing the specifics of "a" pipe.

    I may be wrong, but I would email them first and ask, instead of ordering expecting to get a box of pipes, only to receive one.

    I think you might be right. 20 for a few briars seems a bit too low. I emailed the store to see what's up. If there's like 5-10 I'll jump on it. If not, I'll just throw another 10 on it and get a Grabow.

    Yes, my take on it is also "1 pipe = $20". Still could be a good deal!

    So you all were right (see, this is why I check here before buying :p:)

    It was one pipe/$20. I still might consider it later down the road, once I can let go $20 for a sight-unseen pipe.

    Until then I'll prolly stick with cobs until I get my first Grabow or Altinok.

    Thanks again everyone!
