    And you can see them at www.invictabriars.com look under Classic Briar Pipes, I ordered all straight stem pipes, the Apple, Bulldog, Lovat, Billiard, saddle stem Billiard and the Zulu shape. They are really nice looking, well made pipes, with a beautiful fit and finish and the draught hole is dead on the money. I’m breaking in the Apple shape as I type this post; the draw is nice and open and smokes very easy.

    Man, looks like someone had a serious PAD attack! Smoke 2 bowls and call me in the morning for the prognosis. :thu:

    How much was the shipping from England? Also, did you pay with a credit card?
    Keep us posted on any quality issues. You have definitely piqued my interest in Invicta pipes.

    Shipping was 2.80 pounds around $4.50 US, I have already smoked about 4 or 5 bowls through the Apple and it is smoking cool and dry, it's the smallest pipe of the 6 and does really well so far with flake tobacco, next up in the rotation with be the Lovat! :th1: I ordered them the Tuesday before Christmas and received them today, not bad delivery time considering the holiday shipping volume.

    I also paid with a credit card through Paypal even though I do not have a PayPal account. Payment was easy and service was excellent!

    I've heard of Invicta before but never really checked them out... They look like they have a great range with pretty decent prices! Hmm... Spider sense tells me my Christmas money is in danger ;)

    That bulldog and apple are extremely cool pieces of hardware. Bookmarking this site for future emergency bouts of PAD. Hope you're enjoying these babies this weekend

    WOW.

    That is all I can say. There was a pipe on there called the "Winslow" that was just beautiful. LOL...if I could only say the same about Winslow, AZ.

    I know you are going to love these pipes as I do my Zulu. My Invicta Hungarian is due anytime. Even at full retail I think Invicta is giving these pipes away. I may buy one off sale so I won't feel so guilty.

    Best bang for the buck I have ever spent and I'm fixing to order some more, maybe another 6 or so, man these pipes smoke nice! I love the classic English shapes too! :th1:

    Voodoo, let me know how that Hungarian smokes, I'd also be interested to know if you are able to past a cleaner to the bowl? The draught hole and alignment on mine are perfectly executed!
