    I am very happy to take on custodianship of the below lot from ebay. A leather pouch containing an Orlik antique, A Sav 315ks, a George Jensen, 3 pipe tools and a "poker" tool. Numerous pipe cleaners some cigarette papers and a packet of tobacco for £13.00 (about $20) plus some shipping. My wife won this for me and I'm glad she did! Now I have a little renovating to do to the these into tobacco corner.

    i think you did pretty damn well financially, and the pipes look pretty nice too!

    watch out for orliks though, they're good, undervalued pipes. i accidentally have a few after how well my first one smoked.

    This was on UK. I've just finished working on them and they have come up nice. Although I'm covered in cake dust

    Yes well done Burner.
    On another note I noticed you had a Danish Black Vanilla label on one of your boxes in tobacco corner. Did you like it?
    Cheers.

    Your missus did very well for you and then some, Burner. You're a winner in more ways than one!

    Great now I'm adding Orlik to my pipe searches over on evil-bay. You guys are a horrible influence.

    I was lucky in that SWMBO hates the smell of tobacco so I must conclude she's up to something... Finished the cleanup - Well as much as I'm prepared to do. I noticed the Sav has a little signature on the shank and a badge on the other side like a stylised A not sure what that's about. Tas the black vanilla flake is OK but nothing to write home about - I like to add a bit to other baccys to give a bit of flavour the vanilla is very strong in it. Anyway here they be
