    This should arrive today - I haven't had a new pipe in a while, and I am looking forward to it:

    I saw some of his pipes on a couple of internet sellers' sites and liked the shapes. I especially liked the contrast between the two colors of this one.

    I see a few people here have some Il Ducas. What do you think?

    I can't think of anything bad to say about that pipe. It is gorgeous. The contrasting colors are perfect for a bulldog with such extreme lines. I'm digging it! The top is almost a flying saucer.

    If i was to ever own another bulldog, and a more straighter one than i have, a pipe like that would be the one. That pipe is really gorgeous, my favorite type of finish on a pipe is the dark rustic/sandblast look to a pipe and the way that one is is awesome. Great buy!!!!!!!!!!! :goodjob:

    Where'd you get it from, Puff? briarpipe.com? I missed out on one like it on ebay a few months ago, just love the shape.

    Just drooling again and noticed the tin of Grousemoor. I got some of that but smells like burning hay, not sure if I like it.

    It arrived and looks just as good as the photos. Feels good, too. I haven't had a smoke in it yet because I want to wait until I have plenty of time to enjoy it.

    I got it from thenbriarpipe.com. The service and shipping were excellent and fast.

    Oh wow, thought Puff was the OP for some reason. Probably a combo of lack of sleep and the fact that Puff's been on a binge. In any case its a beaut. I've got my eye on the shape and hopefully one will be mine soon.
