    Came close to not buying a pipe, but as I made my final round I passed by the Neerup table and saw two that jumped out at me. They were similar in size and finish, and briefly debated buying both, but because the finish was nearly identical I opted for this one. Seemed a pretty good deal on a pipe I liked so it's a win.

    Sorry for the crappy pics, but this ain't no photography contest. Smoked two bowls of Bayou Morning out of it yesterday for it's maiden voyage.

    Congratulations. I don't think I've ever seen a shank ring quite as serious as that one.

    Jeebs, i met up with Gunsmoke and Brad, and we were hoping we'd run into you. Did you make it to the show? I checked the forums a couple times looking for an update from you.

    Great looking pipe Gary! I picked that one up at the Neerup table myself and ogled that great little shank ring. I'm a fan as well, after having 2 great smokers in the collection.

    It was really good hanging out with you and Brian as well. :bing:

    I've been looking at his pipes since I started smoking and they are never any of the ones that I like for a while and then change my mind later. They ALWAYS look good to me! Enjoy that beautiful pipe!

    Good to know it has sex appeal ;).

    In all honesty having so many pipes to choose from makes selection incredibly difficult....that is unless you have endless funds! Me, I just wanted a couple new pipes for myself, so between this and the new Sas pipe, I think I'll good for quite some time. Perhaps even til next year's show?

    I found this after 80% of the sellers had packed up. In fact, when I made my initial two round I don't even recall seeing the Neerups, perhaps because there were people in front of the table. (shrug)
