    Just thought I’d share this absolute bargain I won on ebay. A $70 Paronelli Pipe for $9.99. It’s obviously a contemporary take on the ‘pipe’ and won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. However I was after a straight pipe and I love it.

    oh yeah..very awesome.
    I have a black rustic bent paronelli w/ a red acrylic stem, and it smokes great.
    Ive always like the way paronelli puts non-traditional designs on traditional shape, and no they aren't everyones cup of tea (see camo print pipes @ cup-o-joes). They do smoke well, and if you like the way it looks, and smokes, then by all means carry on.
    I think I want another paronelli now :cheers:
    Congrats on your bargain!

    The camo ones are :whistle:

    I love the clear stem and the white and grey colouring. Whats the bowl like inside these pipes, plain briar or some kind of coating.

    Check out the perlson store on ebay they had a few. The only reason I got mine so cheap was the fact there was no 'buy it now' price and no one bided. Almost felt guilty.

    Those Porsche pipes are quite unreal I wonder if they’re briar or are they honed from the left over casting of a 911 engine. They’d want to be for that price.

    Well it arrived earlier this week. The print is a little tacky upon close inpsection however the clear stem makes up for it, has very nice quality to it, great in the mouth. Overall the pipe feels great in the hand and seems to smoke pretty dam well considering it's early days.

    Very cool - and for $10 it would be hard to beat.

    Hi All,

    Very different and a bit too modern for me - but glad it works for you, so many happy years with it,

    I like more traditional looking pipes, but if it smokes well then more power to you. Can't beat the price either. Nice find! Phil.
