    The Falcon is from fleabay, and is supposed to date
    back to the '60s. Unsmoked! :punk: KW is from the
    last pot luck. Just three more Falcon stems, and I'll
    have my seven day set!

    There are a number of them from a specific
    seller that are coloured including the bowls.
    However, the bowls don't look that great
    when they are coloured, IMHO. Loved the
    white bit on this one, so I had to get it.

    I had an orange, then red, one slip out of my talons just like that. Nice grab, dp!

    You have an International and/or a twizzle stick version yet bubba?

    Not yet! The Internationals are easy to acquire,
    but the shillelagh stems are quite pricey. Would
    love to get a hunter stem or two as well.

    great score, I have a blue one with a billiard from the same seller most likely. I've watched their pipes sell from anywhere from 35 - 110 dollars, if I could get a black shillelagh for a decent price I'd be happy.

    Man, I've never smoked a Falcon, but I've considered getting one for a while....if I could get one like that at a reasonable price, I'd jump on it for sure! Nice score :)

    The Shillelagh stemmed ones usually go
    for about 80 - 100 USD. I'd SERIOUSLY
    love to have a gold stemmed one! One day...
    one day. I'm finding that I'm smoking my
    Falcons every day now. Just a great workhorse
    of a pipe!

    Thanks again for the compliments, gents!

    Thanks for the info. 80-100 is a bit steep for a used pipe, in my pocket anyway. I know I sound cheap :( . But, I just might have to save up for that! Looks like I might have to become a bit of a falcon smoker :)
