    Hi Guys,

    Sorry I haven't been around much lately (not that anyone will have noticed, LOL).

    I was looking for a nice Bing online and was willing to pay above the odds for it and remembered previous recommendations for Invicta Briars England.

    I dropped Pete a quick email outlining what I fancied ands got a very quick reply from him. We hashed out the details and for a very vrey reasonable price I have ended up with the following pipe.

    This is the photo he took for the site I haven't got round to taking my own.

    She smokes perfectly resulting in cool smooth creamy smoke wafting over my tongue. The draft whole is placed perfectly at the bottom of the bowl and the fit of the stem into the sterling silver band is super tight.

    I am so so so happy with it and would advise you give him a go if you are looking for an affordable gem in your collection.

    Great Post Big Fil - thumbs up for Invicta Briars - Peter is an excellent pipe-maker and strangely, very personable. I have ordered/received a couple of special-pipes from him as well - can't say enough good things on his behalf. Great briar. Great mechanics. Great finish. Great detail.

    Congratulations on the pipe - it's a beauty.

    Thank you, yes it was certainly a pleasure emailing him and even though I mailed him quite a bit he didn't seem to get bored of me :th1:

    I've just made a request of a special order. Pete replied promptly even though it was the evening.
