    I ordered this little gem directly from Peterson since they are not available in the U.S.
    5 weeks later (they quoted 8-12) I am the proud owner of a new 2012 fathers day pipe # 68. Figured since it was my 1st fathers day I'd ask for something nice. The nickel band is engraved fathers day on the top, and 2012 on the underside. Can't wait to smoke it tomorrow!

    It was only $100 with shipping included. Same as you'd spend on one here. The only thing is you communicate with them through email.

    Another point for Peterson. They always come through. Nice pipe and I hope that you enjoy it over the course of many, many Father's Days to come.

    Not sure. I know VA's don't break in the greatest but I was thinking of some HV. Also penzance is a possibility. I want the first smoke to be something good and hard to find. After the first smoke I'll figure out what I want to smoke in it on a regular basis.
