Well I'm kind of in the same situation as Mark. My mom called and would like to buy me a pipe for xmas. I tried to tell her no that was alright, but she thought I was being rude. I have many pipes, but I have only ever bought two new. I like the history of an old pipe, or at least the history I dream up in my mind about the pipe. Anywho I have no idea how much money she has, but this is what I picked.
