    I pulled the trigger on this yesterday!

    [​IMG]



    I have been wanting a new pipe to use for my aromatics,
    and I finally settled on this.

    Apparently its not in stock, so now the waiting process begins....

    I have a small CAO claw, but this is the first full size NICE meer I've bought.

    I had a bit left over from the 200.00 I negotiated out of my wife, so I also picked up a cheap pipe zippo and a Dr. Grabow Omega..

    Stunning meer my good man-------sounds like between this one, the new Grabow Omega, and the lighter you had a nice little shopping spree. Enjoy them----hope your wait on the one not in stock isn't too long.:th1:

    Nice lattice work on that rascal....worth the wait!

    Johnny....you don't want a meerschaum....damned things tend to smoke way too cool and dry. Besides being good looking and well engineered, they're lightweight and tend to absorb any moisture you might be hoping to have come gurgling up the stem...real crap! Not something a hard-core piper would ever want.


    Oh yeah....if you ever *do* get stuck with one, just send it to me.................................for "proper disposal".

    Very, very nice. I've got three meers that I really like. Nothing near as nice as that Altinok, though. Here's hoping she smokes as good as she looks.

    Awesome pipe! Congrats! There's no going back now, you know...

    The curse of the Meerschaum. I have to really stop myself from smoking them exclusively.

    Altinok and Baki are next in line. Saving for a Squatch pipe. :drly:

    Oh Hell--Stonewall-----go for the wife slappin---get the meer, and a Squatch-----just do it. My last pipe purchase my wife has made me consign some of my other stuff-----told her---I must have a new Squatch----her response---thats ok---I must totally replace all linens in our guest room----it was a horribly expensive meet in the middle agreement. God---she let me down easy--at least I don't have to re-paint the room----she marched my sorry bottom upstairs, and said----look at the beds----and said nice huh---so how long until your new squatch gets hear. I said----cleared the Canadian border today---can't wait---she just shook her head.:haha::byg::haha::xd::laff::xd::xd::laff:

    She caught me lookin at a Cavicchi-----gawd----shortly after I had to get my old beater pickup towed-----$65.00 ---and aint sure whats wrong with it, and how much its gonna cost for repair-------she said-----NO DAMN PIPES---truck repair comes out of your pipe fund. Oh well my road tractor is good------the pickup----18 years old. She said---want to upgrade into a newer personal vehicle----STOP BUYING PIPES-----:haha::xd:-----my reply----I can still walk. Oh well it s so hard to behave when guys are turning out such gorgious pipes------GAWD I think I have pipe OCD.

    She doesn't even ask anymore. Of course I'm a lot more covert on the subject these days. I work my tail off. OT on my off days. She got her new loaded out VW Tiguan today. She'll be ok for at least a month. :D

    The Squatch pipe concept has been designed. It can take as long as he needs to get it where I know he will. The man gives a damn about his Art. And this will be a doozie, for sure. :ngty:

    I think an Altinok will come before the Baki, though. He commands quite the price for his pipes.
