    hello everyone! I have a question about this seller and the item in question:

    www.ebay.com/itm/Classic-Tobacco-Pipe-Collection-NEW-Box-FP6-/260871707628?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cbd2a5bec

    are these pipes actually good to use, or is this just a display only set?

    I have been looking around to buying my first briar pipe my choices being either Dr. grabow or baraccini pipe but I had come across this set, is it to good to be true?

    ...personal opinion, I'll pass on everything they are selling.

    Avoid like the plague, bud. 'No screens needed' is not a serious pipes main selling point. These may be Chinese knock offs.

    I've seen pipes like that all over eBay, they often turn out to be plastic with a metal bowl that's coated in something which is unpleasant when burned, probably intended for smoking things which are not tobacco.

    This.

    Also, anything that makes mention of a screen is usually for the tobaccy that is wacky. The non-wacky tobaccy isn't small enough to necessitate a screen.
